Welcome signs of spring 2010

Welcome signs of spring:

  • Nice big litter of Tamworth piglets born
  • Two weeks of calving brings lots of healthy Dexter calves
  • Pasture fields greening up
  • Flickers pecking away at ants on the lawn
  • Lots of wild leeks so far
  • Trilliums already poking up  in the bush
  • Asparagus patch poking up its heads as of yesterday
  • Spring pork orders sold out (halves and wholes –some cuts including lots of sausages, are still available)
  • Tamworth feeder pigs sold out. Two are going to Ste. Marie Among the Hurons again; others to farms in Oro Township and Severn Bridge
  • It's time for us to make plans for ordering in the chicks that will grow out to be meat chickens
  • There are signs of green in the areas of the Great Round Bale Self-seeding Experiment. All we need is more rain. See below.

Not-so-nice signs of spring:

  • No rain
  • Lots of dust everywhere
  • Farm dog rolling in manure
