A Day on The Farm

Last evening while swimming in the pool, my husband and I looked over to see the grapevine growing on the fence in the shape of a horse. It is one of the only things that is green in our fields. I will have to cut it down and the sheep will enjoy eating it. Luckily for us one of the former owners of this farm built a manure pit under what is left of our driveshed. He had wanted to raise pigs but never did. All the water and snow runoff from the barn and driveshed roofs run into the pit so we have irrigation water when we need it and boy do we need it this year. My neighbo
ur brought over a round bale for the sheep and we will be unloading hay today. Hopefully the rain will come. The sooner the better.
