I agree with you guys. It’s my favorite time of the year to be at the farm. I’m a little further south, everything is starting to green up. I got an early start on cutting and burning cedars. My son and I also got a few more Dirtbike trails cut in. It’s pretty fun to ride this time of year.
Yessir...Love me some green-up time of the year! Down south...it means lots of afternoons with a bit of haze in the air from all of the controlled burns taking place. Added a little more haze last week at the farm when we burned and planning on the same at the house later this week.
Love Spring! The only season that I hate to see go. As for summer down south...always glad to see it go.
Envious of that beautiful stack of firewood. We have been cutting beaver felled elm trees, locust trees and the random fallen cottonwood branch along the river for wood. We enjoy a good fire during the winter here but are surrounded by ponderosa pines that I hate burning.
Last trip to central KS last weekend, the morning temp was 19 degrees. So sort of ready for temps that feel like spring but guessing we may skip spring here this year.
We have firebreaks going around the longleaf pine stand so that we can burn. The firebreaks are very uneven because the forestry commission butchered them with their heavy equipment.
I borrowed a friends tiller this weekend and smoothed everything out as best I could. I then ran a Perfecta over the tilled dirt to make it even smoother. It turned out so well that I planted one long strip.
The dogs found a coon den with a momma and babies. They were quite proud of themselves.
