Here on the hill, we just laugh whenever the forecasters call for breezy conditions. That just means the wind is going to blow even more than usual!

The overwhelming noise and general mayhem of weaning quickly subsided and all went back to grazing on the lush spring grass.
With all the moisture, you could almost watch the plants growing.
Look at this onion…this year's crop is doing very well. They say that the perfect
onion has 13 leaves. Each leaf represents a ring. Most of the onion plants have between 5 and 7
leaves right now and more are coming. The onion crop will not be ready to harvest
until late June. Maybe they’ll all be

(and great weeds)
Since it was too wet to work outside, the Boss got hoophouse #1 all tidy and weed-free. This week’s job…plant all the seedling that are ready for the newly cleared spaces….and on to hoophouse #2.
Checking on the lambs, I found that the autumn olive trees are blooming profusely.
The first week of May is also Mbrook days, complete with Fireman's Parade and chicken barb-b-que. Every year I have been asked to make a cake…this is the sixteenth homemade chocolate cake I have baked for them. I plan on always doing this….because…well, read I Love Mbrook.

The lights are from the brooder and barn
It was very dark and very cold heading to the Market. It seems like I have been saying that for a LONG time this season. But, the sun did shine. It was a good day.
|I keep hoping to get Market pictures|
...maybe next week
That was our week. Hope you had a good one. Thanks for visiting!
