Some people spend their Spring Breaks lounging on beaches. But, why do that when we could get so much work done on the farm?
The following also appears on a yellow legal pad on the kitchen table - the difference is the items are crossed off!
-trim brush around rhododendron
-pick up all the cat "gifts"
-clean screen doors
-trim suckers from Sweet Gum tree by cabin
-weed rhubarb patch
-trim bushes around house
-clean floors in house
-wipe down walls and cabinets (after a long winter of heating with wood)
-clean porch furniture and set it up
-mulch around house
-mend cattle fences
-paint cattle gate on lane
-call company for beef labels
-clear brush around cattle fence
-cut and split fenceposts (72!)
-clear brush from hayfield
We had help with a lot of this from both our families. One thing is for sure, Farmer John and I couldn't run this place all by ourselves.
