A rainy day here on the mountain.
The snow has melted for the most part, a few piles still hang around, but will most likely be gone after the rain. Its suppose to clear off and be nice this after noon,,lets hope. I have some rose bushes I would like to plant and raspberry bushes.
Picked up 37 chicks yesterday on sale, one of those not ya just cant pass it up deals. We have 75 more chicks arriving Monday. 50 meat breed and 25 more pullets. My house will be a peep factory for a few weeks til it really warms up to be able to put them in the barn.
Hoping to get the new goat pens built this weekend and be able to bring them home soon.
As soon as it dries out enough we will be heading to the pasture to do the fencing.
Shouldn't have problem having enough wood next year for winters use. There are a lot of tree down on the fence line.
Itching to get the garden in. But I know its way to early and even the water to the barn hasn't thawed yet. Just seems like a very long cold winter. I am hoping once a lot of the summers work is finished we might be able to build a green house. So next spring I will have a pace to start my seedlings earlier and they wont be in my kitchen and living room.
Deanna and Anthony and I did start cleaning out some of the flower bed the other day while it was beautiful out. Didn't dare to really plant anything yet we still have a chance of a good frost.
Yard clean up is going well, we have been cleaning as the snow has melted so once the metal run is done and the rest goes to the dump, wont look so bad.
Thinking since its a rainy day, some baking is in order. need to get my beans soaking for tomorrow night supper and maybe make a cake or cream horns.
Time to go start lunch time chores and check on every one.
I hope you have a great weekend
