P was gone for work on Monday and then Tuesday was to check all the equipment for a good day to run on Wednesday.
He went back to a less expensive fertilizer because of the low market prices and applied that all day Weds, Thursday, and Friday. Just a bit he is putting in other areas to empty the tank and it is already here for today.
He would like to spray his cover crops but the wind is supposed to get to be too much today so we’ll see. Yesterday was 70′ bright blue skies! The dog & I sat outside and I brushed her. Too bad she’d prefer the shade and I want to sit in the sunshine! She wins…. she is hard to move and has much more fur than me!
When I got a photo of the tractor back home, I found a sleepy dog on the porch.
Earlier while I was out brushing her, I also checked on the lilac bushes. We trimmed them after blooms last year, as I learned online to produce more blooms this year, and it looks like it is working! This area of bushes is packed with little buds of blooms growing!!
We tried winter garlic for the first time with planting in November 2015. So far … all right. One of 3 varieties is doing well. Another has fair population, and the 3rd is all but absent! Thankfully we marked our rows when we planted.
Friday night supper was homemade pizza. Not totally healthy but better than take-out!
I make 3 small pizzas when I do this so we have one fresh and now I have 2 in the freezer for that night where all I can imagine doing is heating a frozen pizza!
