Posted on April 11, 2020 by ebethViews from the Farm – April Nuffield Tractor, vintage 1960s, manufactured in England, diesel, new to us Serviceberry or Juneberry can be used as a planting indicator. It blooms before it leafs out. Its bloom indicates that the soil is warm enough for cool weather crops. And when its blooms are done, that indicates that the soil is warm enough for warm weather crops. It should bloom soon! We have been mucking out pens to make our compost for the 2021 season. Chicks are mostly feathered out and will head outdoors in the next week. Goats enjoy their morning hay. Bucks like fresh air and sunshine! Malegra and her calf enjoy the morning sunshine. Last year’s mucking out has mostly been distributed to various garden beds. Garlic is up. Soil is protected by the mulch hay.
