Sometimes I get such a nice combination of dogs and today was one of those times. Telly and Faye loved going to the garden with Bentley and Ezra, the 2 golden retrievers. Everybody got along and played nicely while I worked.
See all those little green “weeds” coming up before my pumpkins which are planted by each stake? This is actually oats coming up because Rick spread the manure from the barn on the pumpkin patch. The oats have sprouted creating a carpet of green. I got my Roundup mixed up in my sprayer and sprayed all these sprouts before the pumpkin seeds come up. Hopefully I have killed all the “weeds” and when the pumpkin seeds do germinate, I’ll be able to till around them before the weeds take over. I have no excuse this year – I do have time to weed!
I mowed the goat pasture and our friend, Dean, cut the hay. Because it has been so wet, we are not expecting to bale this hay before the sale which is a dirty shame but we have to park in that field and everybody will have to drive over the cut hay. Maybe, if conditions are perfect, Dean can get it baled before Thursday. If you’re coming to the sale, please park in the hayground south of the barn.
My oriole was singing his little heart out today while I worked in the yard. The garage is all scrubbed and ready to set up the checkout tomorrow.
Emma says “hi”!
Sale starts June 4 at 9 am – see you at the farm!
