Spring has finally arrived and with it, all the busy-ness that the season brings. I've figured out that it's a good thing to have only a couple days of nice weather, followed by a couple days of rain.
It gives the tired, achy muscles a chance to recuperate!
While we didn't have the opportunity to till the garden, we were able to drag the field.
I say we, but really it was all him.
After all, somebody had to take the pictures.
After 2 hours, this is what the field looked like.
It only took another 4 to drag the rest!
Spring isn't just about dragging the fields though.
If you're a cow, it's also about grazing the fresh, green blades of grass.
It's having the freedom to play outside and soak up some much needed vitamin D.

Spring is a time for new romance.
|Bourbon Red Fred ditched Ethel and ran off with Lucy...scandalous!|
And a time for new beginnings.

|We should have new "babies" shortly after Mother's Day!|
Spring is also a time to start all of the projects that we could only dream about over the last 5 months.
|An artesian spring that will eventually feed into an underground cistern for watering our animals.|
|Soon, the chickens will have a new yard to match the turkey yard.|
And finally, soapmaking became a reality.
With the return of rain showers, it seems like the gardening season will have to wait a little longer to begin.
I predict the Lemon Coconut Milk soap will be ready to use by the time the beans go in the ground!
At least, that's the plan.☺
