Early April at my Farm One Year Ago!

Dear Readers - I've been sort of amazed how slow the progression of spring has been this year.  If I showed you a new around the farm blog, it really wouldn't look much different from the last one I posted on March 28th.  The paddocks are still brown, the daffodils have not yet bloomed, and it's been very windy and cold.  I looked back to last year's blogs and here's one I posted exactly one year ago.  What a difference a year makes!

The last time I posted an around the farm blog was on March 23rd.  Looking back at that posting, one can see just how much has changed in less than two weeks.  If you compare this year’s blogs to what was happening at the farm one year ago, it’s pretty apparent that we are a good three weeks ahead this spring.  I find that rather disturbing, but I am relieved that things are growing so well.  Now, unfortunately, we are in a dry spell and to keep things looking good, we must begin watering much earlier than usual.
