Happy St. Patty’s Day everyone! I hope that you began the morning with an excellent breakfast of Green Eggs and Ham! Not that Dr. Suess has anything to do with St. Pat’s Day but, the color is just too cool to pass up!
That is about the extent of how much I celebrate St. Patty’s Day. To me, it is just another day full of things to do and things to get done. I spent about an hour yesterday just assessing the damage and the standing water that is in the pastures and fields. We have a lot of work to get done! Barn roof that collapsed needs to be torn down and removed. The hoop barn needs to be pulled down and reset because of the leaning walls due to extremely high winds (they gusted at over 70 mph). We need to scrap out all the barns, get the compost pile moved to the garden, clean up all the residual build up from feeding round bales and the lawn is littered full of broken pieces of tree branches and stones from the snow plowing.
We have standing water in about 1/2 the pasture and by the way, we still have a ton of snow spots here and there. I can’t wait for the grass to start turning green. Spring is so close…I just can’t wait!
