Unstable weather patterns...that's what the weatherman said.
And yes, for once he was completely correct.
Yesterday was one of those days when at any given time,
if you did not like the weather,
all you had to do was wait a half hour and it would change.
We had sun.
And rain showers.
It was weird, I tell ya!
In spite of the instability,
we were able to work on some Spring projects.
Like.... roto-tilling the soil around the new indoor arena,
in preparation for grass planting.
Tilling the ground kicks up hundreds of rocks that must be picked up by hand.
Of course Oakley is there to help...
you call this help?
Oh how our boys love playtime!
We have a huge area that will need grass planted.
Now that night time temperatures are to be warmer,
it's time to spread the seed.
Hopefully we will begin to get some rain...
or watering will be added to daily farm chores.
I used our tractor to haul piles of soil and compost to this area in the field.
Here I am planning to build a rock retaining wall around this pile of soil
to create a new flower garden.
Of course, I will have lots of "help"!
With the planting of grass seed, these hens will be confined to their yard...
which will sadden the roosters who come for their daily visit!
As the sun set, we finished our work.
I happened to look up to the pastures and saw Becky's horses,
silhouetted against the evening sky...
one of my favorite sights.
Hopefully today I will start building my rock wall.
A trip to the nursery is all I need; and I can start planting!
I share pictures when this project is complete.
