Fruit Trees

Yesterday evening the girls and I planted 6 fruit trees.  Grace dug every hole.  She was very excited about getting fruit trees.  As you can see, she has  good helpers- the cats and the chickens.

And, of course, our ever faithful Shadow.

We planted an asian pear, bartlett pear, plum tree, golden delicious apple tree, golden transparent apple tree, and a nectarine tree.  We hope to get 2 cherry trees in April.  While we were working on the trees, Hubby was busy trimming the blackberries.

It was a nice, productive evening.   After we finished planting, we went to get the clothes off the line and a huge flock of geese flew directly over our heads to land in the field.  Of course, we had already put the camera up so I couldn’t get a picture.  It would have made a beautiful picture though. 

Today will be school as usual.  Hopefully, with more outside work afterward.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Projects

Here is Julie’s wall hanging.  What do you all think?  I think maybe for a beginner it might not be too bad.  It really was a lot of fun.  There was a little more guilting involved than I first anticipated but I think it turned out okay.  I am going to start Grace’s hopefully this week.  More snow today.  We have had more snow this winter than we have had since we have lived here at the farm-6 yrs. now.  I hope this makes for an excellent garden year.  Hopefully lots of good veggies and fresh fruit.  Fruit trees in our area did not do well last year and we really missed all those good apples, pears, and peaches.  100_2783

Another project I worked on today.  Making our own hamburger buns.  This batch turned out much better than the first batch.  At least these look like buns.  We’ll find out this evening how they taste.  I think hamburgers and fries for supper.  School has been a little slow today, sometimes this happens when we take a day off.  Of course, the snow outside didn’t help any.  The forecast is calling for another storm to come in over the weekend.  I guess this will mean no MawMaw time.  Maybe the next weekend.  Well break time is over.  Time for school.   Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting.  God Bless.
