Spring on the farm

March 26, 2012

The girls and I walked to the pond on Sunday. I have never seen our 22-acre pasture in better condition. The pond is still recovering from a winter kill two years ago, but looks good. The grass carp I stocked are now a foot long.

A goose made a nest right by the water’s edge next to where Caroline is standing, below. Our foxes will love that.

We saw dozens of snapping turtles enjoying the sun.

Michelle learned a valuable lesson — always wear boots to the pond. The first photo shows Caroline washing the mud off her legs at the old well. My peach tree is in full bloom.

Enjoy the week!
