It's spring in South Carolina and that means snow one week
Frozen mud the next week
And ducks having sex the next week!
Today it is 80 degrees but Saturday night it is supposed to be 27!
Of course all of the fruit trees are blooming and might be killed :-(
We have been traveling a lot (a wonderful month in Cuba) but we have managed to get a few things done around the farm. I no longer have to climb concrete blocks to get in the house!
Our masons, Steve and James, did a fantastic job on the underpinning and the steps.
We are almost ready for landscaping and driveways.
Tom is glad to be finished with taxes and back working outside.
He spent several days clearing and burning brush
Our milk lady has started milking goats so I made several kinds of
goat cheese which were wonderful!
I am still enjoying the wonderful pantry Tom built for me.
We have added to our farm menagerie. Three stray kittens from Craig's List. They are all solid black and all boys. We named them Boo, Scout, and Atticus before we knew they were all boys. They are supposed to be barn cats catching mice, but they have made themselves at home everywhere on the farm. They think Jasmine is their mother. She's not so sure!
If it doesn't freeze and if Tom gets the lawn mower fixed, I will be spending the week-end mowing the grass for the first time this year. Spring is a wonderful time to be out on our farm!

as I finish editing them.
