The days are flying by and becoming a blurr. The days and evenings there are things going on, and it's been hard to sit down and read blogs I love to read and to blog myself!
All our sap stuff is taken down, washed, dried, and put away until next year. We didn't get much at all, which is a bummer, but we did have some to sell to some of our customers. So that was good.
I was able to finally go out with one of my bffs last night, who just so happens to be one of my sisters. I needed some new jeans and she wanted to go out and get some clothes too. We had a blast. Shopping with someone is so much more fun then going alone!
This week has been in the high 70's and even 80's!! Crazy weather for Maine, this time of year. Then today it's only in the 50's and very windy. We went from shorts and tank tops, not to mention flip flops!! Oh how I love flip flops! To jeans, my cowgirl boots, and a sweater. I do love all the wind and sun we have though, it's free solar power to dry my clothes on the line super fast!
I'll show you how windy it is. It blew some of the clothes on the ground. Look how pretty the sky is. I love that color!! The grass is starting to green up too!!

 Everyone love to see pictures of manure. OK, maybe not everyone. But this is one of our gardens with manure on it. Been composting and needs to be tilled into the ground. Hopefully this garden will produce better then it did last year. The soil is just not as good as out other one.

 I love earth science with the kiddos! We planted some tomatoes, cantaloupe, and peppers. They are learning the process of life, life skills, not to mention where and how their food is grown. I love to watch the seeds turn into the plants and produce fruit, or veggies! Hoping to get some watermelon too. My baby loves that stuff!! Here's hoping to a bountiful harvest this fall too!

And who doesn't need a little flower power in their lives? I love flowers and would love to someday have flower gardens around the house. But and that is a huge but the sheep need to be locked up before that will happen, again! Ah lesson learned. They like to eat flowers. My boy planted some too, but in the picture above. His plant pot flew away! We'll have to get him another one! Don't ask me what kind of flowers the kiddos planted. I have no idea. They had seeds and dirt, and they were happy to just go at it and plant!

I can't wait to get our gardens planted, but we don't plant until the end of May here. We still have some work to be done before we plant. Still too cold.

We have some red clover seeds to plant in the cow pasture this year. They will love that, if it can grow. I don't know if we'll get it done today due to all the wind. Don't want it flying away! But I'll get pics and post when we do!
Have a great day all!


  1. Busy, busy, busy! It's that time of year! :)
    Don't get blown away up there!

  2. 70's in the State of Maine? No denying it - global warming is here and its real.

    1. something is. now it's cold and winter/spring like.

  3. I love your clothes line! We've had such warm weather that you get tricked into thinking that it's here to stay - NOT! Now we're back to cold and windy. I'm ready for warm weather, too.
