Huge tree down

When I heard that big CRACK in the windstorm last night, I thought it was just a big branch breaking off. Turns out the whole tree snapped off and landed blocking our driveway.

A friend came over early with a chainsaw and we cut the tree up into big chunks. We didn't have time to chop it up, so I just dragged the limbs off the driveway with the tractor.

Our goat kid was born yesterday! We will be picking up mama and doeling in a couple of weeks! We are so excited! I've got two weeks to get the barn and fence tight, build a milking stand, and build a milking area.

We've got lots to plant, but we may get snow Saturday morning which kind of puts a damper on things. We've already got about 10 tomatoes in the ground. I might use the "wall o' waters" on them. We'll see.

Life is just so beautiful. I've never had it so good. Blessed be.

  1. Wow.. good thing that tree fell someplace it would't hurt someone. I keep feeling 'behind' cuz my tomatoes and peppers aren't all in yet-- and then I remember how many folks up north haven't even begun to plant theirs yet--and we'll still be warm when yours are done. Helps me keep from having a panic attack over my garden when I read things like 'wall o waters'. Thanks! (not meaning to gloat about it--I mean it--thanks!
