It’s warming up, so we’re back at work in the fields. We’re about done planting a new crop of Leyland Cypress trees. We plant by hand, and use strings and stakes to line the rows up both ways. We’re also basal pruning the two- and three-year old trees so they’ll have a nice trunk to go in a tree stand at selling time. Bought some seed for the garden the other day. Will try to get some English peas and cabbage in the ground in a day or so. Also have to get with cousin John McLucas and plant some oats to have some to thresh at Inman Farm Heritage Days.
A new baby goat arrived the other day.
