We have been very busy. The key thing is that we feel good about yesterday. Janna and Madeline got 500 strawberry plants planted in 2 hours between 11 am and 1 pm! It rained the last half but not hard enough to make it muddy.

The tunnel crops are up and starting to good average to good. I will try get some pictures up soon. We also have outdoor peas in and up ( barely) and onions, radishes and other cool weather crops. Most of the big tiller tillage is done here.

The gilts are ready to go the Mike Hibmas to have their piglets, he is supposed to pick them up this week. They look like they will farrow soon.

Maxine had her calf the other day, I looked about 3 and looked like she had for 3 weeks, and then when I turned the tractor around in the field and look in her direction she was licking a calf about 5. The calf is a nice chocolate brown color, no white anywhere.

The first broiler chicks arrived two weeks ago and should be out on grass by Thursday!
