It has been another nasty week on the homestead. We just can't seem to catch a break. It has rained almost daily and though a warm day here and there, it has stayed very cold. We are so far behind with our farm chores it is starting to overwhelm us.
Yesterday we finally were able to get the sheep off the hay pasture and fertilize. It was wet, but rain was again in the forecast for Sunday and it had to go out. This should have been done mid-February!
Today was all about getting the barns cleaned out, yet another long overdue chore. Hay was so deep on the floor I was having problems opening gates. The barn was scraped out and all the hay, shavings and manure were piled to start the composting process.
