Yep it Started
I think it's safe to say the rains have finally come. The fields and area around the Small-Hold have been greening up nicely but I think we are still about a month or more behind where we have been the last couple of years. I know for a fact the fruit trees were already done blooming by the end of March in 2012 and they are still in buds so far this year. Haven't seen even one fruit tree blossom yet.
Regardless the yards and fields are mostly just flooded now. We got one hell of a gully washer last night and this morning. I had to go over to the old farm and help my dad clear out a culvert and ditch that had gotten choked with leaves and was washing out. Something I have done about 50 rimes before. As I have mentioned we don't even own the old farmstead anymore but my dad still insists we take care of the place for the guy who bought it who lives out in Colorado or somewhere. Seems only fair since I cut most of my wood there still I guess.
Looks like I got that fence line finished just in time yesterday.
Now the race is on to see how fast the grass grows versus how fast the water drains away that allows me to cut it.
Just a blah rainy day without much to write about. At least I know Winter is pretty much past for sure now just have to get through the rainy period.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
