It may sound a bit odd - but we're entering a point in our year where a lot of things have to get done in a compressed period of time. And, it's not likely what everyone is thinking.
Once we get into April and May, activities for nursing green and growing things, chicks and other living things on the farm really get going. In fact, they take enough time and energy that many other things just are not likely to get done. Therein lies the problem.
There are home and farm repairs to do now that the weather is making some of them more possible. There are taxes to complete. There are various bookkeeping and household things. There is a roof to complete, windows to put in, cabinets and shelves to build, a building door to put up and maybe even a walk in cooler to put together. And, yes, if we want to get a grant completed for alternative energy, that had better happen soon as well. There is no end of things to do.
It's a good thing to have so much to do and so much ambition to accomplish all of this. The problem is always the time pressures to get it all done.
We still have a building to clean up the rest of the way....
And a barn that may or may not get attention...
But, you have to do what you can.
Thanks to Sally Worley for the wonderful pictures from our PFI field day last year.
