home and farming
I have been back on my farm in Nova Scotia for a few weeks now. I am saturated with the work of getting the fields ready, planting, fixin stuff, spring cleaning. I am reunited with my young Border Collie Buddy Macteeth, trick dog extraordinaire. The windrow of manure I laid down the center of my new field is well composted and provides material for 3 adjacent beds. Those beds and a few in my old field are planted to turnip radish salad peas and onions. The greenhouse is up and full of seeded salad and beets with a bench that now has onion starts waving their green luminescence. I transformed the sunroom to my potting house and am doing without copious light stands very effectively. Pictures will come in a couple of weeks when my sweetheart arrives for a visit with camera in tow. Maybe by then I`ll have something sweet under the belly of my new (old) Farmall 100! Until then I expect to post sporadically. Thank you dear readers.
