How can one not share the earth's beauty.
The long winter days have ended...
Yes, there's way more time to work...
but when you love what you do...it becomes
Your Happy Place!
The winter wheat has again completed it's work in becoming a cover crop.
One is woken early by the tractor engines working over time.
Disking, Poughing, Rotavating, Cultivating Seeding and Planting.
It's all part of farm life.
And what's under the plastic?
It's all part of a days work.
My little boys thought it was a snow-covered operation.
Meanwhile the potatoes sprouted early in April
and the rest of the vegetables are all growing with fervor.
My morning therapy is taking a walk out to the garden and fields.
Once again, "What's under the plastic?"
Chilliwack Corn is being sprouted and protected.
Meanwhile, the potting plants are hauled out of the shop,
and brought back for cleaning, dusting and fresh dirt.
A quick juant to the local garden shop, brings fresh beauty.
The garden beds are bursting forth with buds.
The pots are planted and now it's time to enjoy the beauty.
If you could grab a coffee and lounge chair,
which corner of my yard would suit your fancy?
Front yard facing east toward Mt. Cheam.
Backyard facing west toward the corn fields.
Patio with a fireplace for the cooler evenings.
Join me and let's share a glass of refreshing lemonade.
Summer is here and I'm in 'My Happy Place'.
