Farmhouse gleanings..

Here's a little bit of what's happening 'round here...the new asparagus bed is producing like crazy! I have already picked 4 batches. The old bed is starting to come on, as well. I guess I will have plenty to can, as well as eat fresh. My rhubarb is nearly ready to start picking. In the garden, the kale, onions,radishes , and horseradish are all up. The garlic and strawberries that were put in last fall are also doing well. We got to mow the yard once,too. I think the guys are done spreading lime and fertilizer,but I could be wrong. We are getting our little pigs tonight, the kids are so excited! My chickens are laying well, too. I sell the excess eggs, and believe it or not, demand is starting to exceed availability!! I guess that is a sign of these economic times. My milk cow is being dried off now, so that she will produce a healthy calf. I am hoping for a heifer..we usually get a bull. I hate to buy milk, it just isn't the same. I see my son was building new fence this AM for the beef cows..they will appreciate the new grass!! Guess that's about it for news, soon it will be time to start supper, so I'd better get busy.( I can't believe that only a short week ago that I was saying everything was slow coming. Must be those few 70 plus days and the warm rain woke everything up!)Smile A nice P.S...just a little bit ago, we had our first spring rainbow!!
