Fast Forward a Month!

This blog is like an old friend. One that I owe a call. The more I think about the fact that I haven’t written, the more I feel like I don’t know what to say because I’m such a slacker. 

Anyway, tonight I decided to just get in here and write…

It has been a busy month.  We started out the month cutting, clearing and picking up a hedgerow.  Those of you familiar with hedge know the branches will start growing almost sideways in order to get light.  They have to be cut so tractors—or anything for that matter—can drive under or even close to the trees.  Given that we aren’t as young as we used to be, this ended up taking longer than we thought.  What we accomplished looks good, but it really never ends with hedge.  The brome is growing, so we are done for now.  We still have a huge pile of these branches to burn and missed out on a chance for a safe fire when it snowed last week. 

The reason we missed burning when it snowed is because we made a flying trip to Colorado.  Trent and Carly were here over their spring break and we took them home—actually leaving a week ago tomorrow.  While they stayed with us, we were able to talk them into picking up rocks that were “flipped” out of the field when our neighbor ran over it with a rotary harrow.  Carly found something under one of the rocks…


We enjoyed a spring snow storm in Colorado even though we missed the one here.   It was beautiful for a day.  By the time we left on Sunday, the roads were clear.

The little red Corolla racked up more miles this week with the 50th State Water Convention in Wichita for three days.  I’ll put that on a different post because I even took some notes that I thought might be interesting if anyone out there is still checking in….
