Spring planting and blooming

I haven't had much time to post any news on all the things keeping us busy (and there is LOTS) - so for a quick post, I will upload several recent photos of spring at the farm. In the meantime, just know we are always somewhere planting, mowing, cleaning, painting, working -- and waiting on rain!

My sister holding one of our new baby goats - this one is a real cutie!

Uncle Paul and Steven working on the tractor's starter.

I love the crabapple tree in full bloom. It is a glorious display!

The goats are loving the spring grasses.

Fruit trees are blooming! (this is an old pear tree)

We put a new top box on the beehive and checked on the bees.

The currant bushes all bloomed, and smelled wonderfully spicy!

Steven working in the greenhouse. Here he is starting slips of arborvitae
so he can plant a windbreak of them north of the house.

Hope you are having a wonderful spring!
