That’s what we have here at the F&P. Even though it didn’t get over 50F today and was breezy and raw. What a perfect day for manure spreading. I know, some of you will be really disappointed that you have missed the big Annual Manure Toss but never fear there will be another next year. The two main plots we are using this year got 680 lbs of wonderful Bovine Gold. Then came the hard part, turning it all under. Well maybe not so hard since JD did most of the work, i just steered.
BUT WAIT!!!!!! Didn’t i mention Apple Blossoms?????? Why yes i did. AND we have blossoms starting on all three apple trees and all three peach trees. Yes even the new ones. From the look of the older peach as long as we don’t have a hard rain that knocks the blossoms off we will have a great harvest. I can smell the fresh Peach Pie now. Wonder if there are any left in the freezer??????
All the photo kudos go to Beatrice. By the time i realized that i had forgotten my camera (Again, as always) the Bovine Gold had been spread, both plots had been turned twice and i was heading back to the barn. With all of the rain we have had over the last few weeks the soil was just barely workable. I had about a 2 inch thick coating of mud on the bottom of my boots, so there was no way i was going in to get my camera.
Just to make things interesting, they are predicting possible SNOW for Sunday. Don’t they know this is the “Sunny South”?
