Happy First day of Spring

Posted on

Well it’s a lovely cold morning, so nice to have to light a fire on the first day of spring… yeah …  Anyway. not much going on with the weather not co-operating.  WE have a winter storm warning which starts tomorrow…fun.  I did manage to get something done yesterday, besides laundry.

I went out and first I fluffed up the potato patch and then I planted my seed potatoes (we didn’t manage to get the sun chokes again).  The one red potato I planted last fall is starting to  grow as well.  I did have a surprise when I got out the seed potatoes, they had all sprouted and had roots on them already.  So on the few I had to cut down to be smaller I cut them so that they would all have some actual roots on them.

Had some good news from the weather people the other day, due to all the precipitation we have gotten ourselves out of the “severe drought”, and are now just listed as “dry”; I am hoping pretty soon we’ll be past that too.

A friend of our’s Mark Cheneil writer of the “Missouri Journal”  over on homestead.org is in the hospital, we all wish him good health; and to get well.

 

That’s it for now…

 

Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
