Tulip - that little red spike
Guess I had better think about cleaning out all the dead stuff from my flowerbeds this spring, once it warms up a little more:) Proof that most of the snow has melted, even if we now have little rivers running everywhere:
This is part of our yard, and our horse pasture/cow overflow pasture. There are maybe 5-6 acres in this pasture (the fence is on the far side, by that line of pine trees, which is 1 edge of our property), and when the horses cannot keep up, we run the cows over here and let them eat it down. There's not much shade over here, so we try and time it when it's not really hot out for the cows to be over here.
The kids had fun helping - getting muddy - playing. Tyler thought it would be fun to "feed" the cows hay. Never mind that right there is the round bale feeder, where they have access to half a bale of hay. He must've thought they would starve if he didn't hand feed them:
This is our bargin corn crib - we brought it off of a friend 2 or 3 years ago - we only plant 2 acres of corn -just enough for us to grind into feed for our cows (and in the center of the 2 acres - we plant 8 rows of sweet corn trying to hide it from the racoons with limited success) - it was filled up to that 2x4 going across the bin last fall - this is how much we have used. This is a favorite place of Tyler's to play - when it's relatively empty, that is.
So now after tonight, I am really hopeful that spring is on the way. Or at least, some sunshine and warmer temperatures!! Angie - I'm doing my garden post tomorrow - YIKES - it's rather long!!:)
