Spring on the Farm

Except for the lack of rain,
It's pretty much been spring since January.

It's always busy on the farm in spring.
The orange orchard is ready for summer,
mowed, round-upped and fertilized.
This year we are putting in all new water lines
(drip lines).  All the pipe the fittings were delivered today,
so that will be next weeks job.  We've changed all of 
the irrigation stations, over to clocks.
Trying to be more conservative with our water.

All kinds of flowers are in bloom and the yard has already
had it's big cleaning for the year, do to Biscuits birthday 
party last weekend.

The new shop is getting closer to being done.
the building is finished, now the electricians are adding lights 
and the roll-up doors will be going in soon.
Can't Wait !!!!
Plan on doing a big clean around here as soon as it's done.

Working on the kitchen garden, hoping to get it all planted in the
 next two weeks.  I don't plant as soon as some of my friends.
April seems to hold out one more freeze or hail storm.
Thinking no more rain then we've gotten,
I'm safe.

The Biscuit, has turned two. 
 Her Mama and Daddy, had her party here on Saturday.
Small, mostly family and a few friend and perfect.
BBQ, Cup Cakes, Lots of Gifts.
Baby calf kelp all the kids entertained,
best decoration at the party.
The Biscuit was in high gear for the entire party,
till she crashed in the arms of her Mother.
Even Cinderella's Ball had to come to an end.
