Spring has sprung about 6 weeks early. The porcupine and woodchuck were right! I think a groundhog and woodchuck are about the same thing. Who would have ever thought we would stay 15 to 30 degrees above average for weeks on end. Several bird species are back early and the dirt in the greenhouse is at 50 degrees. Stitch might get some leaf lettuce planted today. Of course there is a down side. The forest might burn up if we don't get some precipitation. Yes, yes, I know talking about the weather is considered "small talk", but for those of us who spend a lot of time outside and don't live in a city or town, it is a major player. Besides, this is Minnesota where small talk has been taken to an art form.
I felt the need to document this odd March with photos around the farm, so here are a couple. It shouldn't look like this until early May.
As I was walking around, in my slippers no less, I wanted to see if the round pen had dried up enough to use. I am not sure if it has because I didn't want to disturb one of our four-footed neighbors who was wandering around in that vicinity.
Spring has sprung,
The grass is riz.
I wonder where
The flowers is?
