Busy days on the farm.................

Spring has finally come to the farm
{though I heard that rain is moving in
and that rain my change to SNOW}

The trees are budding...
my nose tells me so as it is
getting very sniffly! 



Long, busy days are ahead
as my Farmer heads out to the
the field.  He is fertilizing the
fields right now.  We spread
urea in our fields.  Here he
is filling the Terra-Gator with
fertilizer.

I am sorry I missed my weekly
recipe post for Weight Watcher
Wednesday...but I just could not
find the time!

Tell me what is going on in
your neck of the woods.

Thanks for stoppping by!

I think everyone is busy right about now. We've been trying to get a new floor in our trailer. Maybe this weekend! Have a great one!

Now that's a big operation! We think spreading Fertilizer is dragging the poop or spreading three little tons of pellets.

It seems that everyone is busy this time of year. The change in the weather means projects, gardening and lots of outside playtime around here.

Hey Tania! We understand how busy this time is for you & your family. Farming is your livelihood, so you have to keep up with the work involved.
I wish you many healthy crops, plenty of rain & sunshine and lots of free time between the work.
Have a great weekend!

Been super busy around here, too. I finally have a "little" break. Just trying to catch up.

Looking forward to the weekend myself. Hope you find a little time to relax. In a few minutes I for one am going to my place of meditation. On the lake, fishing.

I'm beginning to think everyone's middle name is "busy" in the springtime.

We appreciate all of the work you farmers do because it is not easy.

Take care!

Our sweet farmers are fixing to start cutting their hay. We haul it to the dairies for them. My brother is cutting triticale now so it's officially spring! I've planted my flowers and we're all praying for RAIN!! ;)

It's so funny that I heard from you because I was looking at the rhubarb cake the other day and thought about how much my hubby would love it, sweetpea. He's got this "thing" for rhubarb and I can't stand it. LOL But he puts it over ice cream and just loves it. I didn't tell him about the cake because that would mean I have to cook and I ain't cookin' any more than I have to. ;-)

I suppose you;re prepping for the planting about now, right? I'm sure you and the hubs are busy.

xoox,
Connie

When you've had your fill of that rain, send it our way please! Hard to get into the fields when they're sopping wet! Busy is good - it keeps us out of trouble, or so I am told!
