Smells like SPRING to Me!
AHHH! Nothin’ like country air in the Spring! It smells so sweet and fine!
Hehe… this is NOT what you’d be thinking today, my friend.
It is a beautiful day here in the countryside, the grass is greening up, the early spring flowers budding out, the birds are singing….and IT STINKS! Seriously STINKS!
Spring is the time for readying the fields for growth. Nothing finer for promoting growth than poultry litter, and it just so happens that those poultry houses used for broiler production need some cleaning out in anticipation of the new crop of chickens. So, today, the trucks and tractors are working overtime…hauling, spreading and going back for more. I’ve seen them coming and going all afternoon. There is a chance of rain sometime next week, which makes the timing perfect for fertilizer application.
So, despite the fact that it is very odoriferous around here right now, it is one more sign of spring.
Take a good ole deep breath of that fine country air! (you’ll get used to it…. honest)
