And The Days Fly By

My how time does fly when it is spring time on the farm. The garden is growing quit nicely and we are still able to harvest lots of greens. Our sno peas look like they should be blooming soon and the potatoes are up and thriving. I have added a few more herbs the the kitchen garden along with an Italian tomato tree that is supposed to grow to be 15 feet tall! We'll see how that goes. The asparagus bed has been weeded and they are poking their little heads out of the ground. I finally moved the fruit trees out of the kitchen and though they are not very happy looking, a few are beginning to set fruit. With all the spring rains it looks as though we may have a bumper crop of grapes, apples, pears and plums.

The meat birds have been relocated to the chicken tractor in the orchard. They will stay in the tractor until they are a little bigger and then will be allowed to range on their own. Turkeys are set to arrive in a few days and 50 more meat birds on May 1. Busy days for sure.
