Kind of hard to tell, but this is a big old shagbark hickory tree in the woodsy part of our farm. If the apples don't attract the deer, the hickory nuts will.

The apples trees are blooming. I'd say we have 40-50 trees scatered around, but don't know how good they are yet. Here are a couple along the driveway.

Next weekend, we will be tilling and planting, as well as getting rocks out of the field. Our neighbor planted barley in the field, and noted a lot of rocks, so we are going to try to thin them out. Might end up with some landscaping materials.

Digging rocks out of a field? It sounds like you need to enlist some local youngsters! Pay them $1 for each rock bigger than their head, $0.10 for each rock bigger than a baseball- something like that? I don't really know how many rocks it would add up to.

Well, we are becoming farmers again, so we might as well get used to doing this sort of thing.

Not all that many local youngsters around anyway. It will be a nice change of pace......for about an hour I"m guessing.
