I'm Dreaming Of A White

Lake Winter Scene

Spring Peeper FarmOK, not a white Christmas.

After many years of brown Christmases, this year we actually had a white one! I was all excited.

But what I'm dreaming of now is what I'm going to do this spring.

The main thing I'm going to accomplish this upcoming spring and summer is get the days from 24 hours to 36. AND!!!! Spring and summer are going to last two months longer!


That's my plan.

What's strange is that I talked it over with God and He wasn't so keen on the idea.

So now I'm dreaming of how I'm going to cram everything I want done this spring and summer into the short amount of time I have.


First on the agenda I have someone building me a little hut to put at the end of the driveway to sell my extra eggs, soap and veggies.

Next, I want to get two calves to bottle feed because I want one for us and I want to donate the meat of the second one to our friend, Pastor Tracy Marr. He's started a wonderful place with a wonderful idea. Check him out on Facebook, Needs to Deeds.

I also want to get turkeys this year (just the regular kind, learned my lesson the hard way) and let them roam in the pasture with the goats. Then donate most of them to charity also.

I'm planning on starting up the incubator in about a month also.

I also want two more raised beds to grow more, to be able to can more dill pickles and Brussels sprouts since the two-legged critters in the house love them!

And THEN! Well, I have something else up my sleeve, but I want to wait and see if it comes to fruition (big word of the day) before I spill the beans.

And no, it doesn't breath and I don't have to feed it. So it's not an animal.

I want to do a lot of camping this summer. But for that I need a farm sitter ... any takers?

And so this is why I need to make spring and summer longer.

Nothing serious.

Have a Blessed Day!
