Blue Racers, Goat Videos and More

It’s been a busy spring here in Windy Woods. Doing a lot outdoors. I learn something new every day around here, and every year for that matter.  For example, this year I’ve learned the children don’t believe their sandbox is deep enough. Turkey’s are apparently variable in their “territory”. We’ve recently had a flock decide […]

The Trees are Starting to Bloom

Spring is really in the air here in Windy Woods, the trees are starting to bloom.  Now comes the time to worry and fret, as it’s still possible to get a hard freeze. The pear tree doesn’t look like it’s quite ready to open yet, but it’s getting there.

Hey! What Happened to Spring?

Forget what I said the other day about spring. Not only has the temperature dropped back below freezing, the ground is refreezing, and it’s snowing out there as I type. I’m not in the least surprised, but what else is there for a farmer to talk about sometimes?  The weather.

It’s Early Spring in Windy Woods

Not much happening in Windy Woods this week.  Biggest thing this weekend was cutting and splitting wood. I think I have enough cut and split now to finish out the cold for this winter.  After all, it is officially spring.  The sun is now slightly north of straight east and west. I did take advantage […]

Heavy Snowfall & Wintertime Blah’s

Tennessee is looking better every day.  I still want to be far enough north to have winter, but would prefer a slightly shorter version of it. As you can see from the picture of our […]

I’m Thankful For …

On this Thanksgiving day 2013 I thought I would list a few things that I’m truly thankful for. I truly am not being sarcastic about any of these either, despite what my readers might think. First and foremost, I’m thankful for my best friend in the world, Kristen who has given me a reason to […]

Rub a Dub Dub, Two Toddlers in a Puddle

OK, not very good, but it was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this. At least there were “boating” and not just splashing around in that icy puddle. I didn’t get as much work done last weekend as I had wanted, but I did manage to put an “egg door” […]

Walking the Fenceline With Altana

November 7, 2013

Well, actually, there’s no fence yet, but Kristen and I have been walking the line with Altana to familiarize her with the future boundaries. This has become one of my favorite times of the day.  Weekdays I only get to take the evening walk, but on the weekends, I go for all three.  It’s a […]
