Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

May 22, 2013


I sort of took the better part of the week off from blogging, mainly to enjoy a visit from our son, up from Houston, Texas. It was great to see him again.

 In the meantime, things have happened on the Acreage! Apple trees have blossomed, with lots of flowers and hopefully, plenty of apples. We still have the chance of frosts, but hopefully, not this year.
 The lower field is greening up.
The horses are still mainly on hay with about an hour and a half per day in the corral eating green grass.The upper field ( in the background is greening up nicely. It will be the second week in June before they are allowed in there. Can you spot Boots?
 The orchard is doing well and showing lots of promise. Cheap labour was offered and accepted this last week and the gardens were dug and prepared.
 Raspberry bushes were cleaned out and the dead canes removed and the live canes tied up.
 We are even eating fresh tomatoes from the green house. These plants (three) were bought from the nursery and will supply fresh tomatoes until fall.
 The rhubarb patch is almost ready for pies and crumbles.
 Strawberries have been planted and are flowering.
All in all, lots of changes on the acreage!

PS Thanks for not mentioning that the grass needs cutting!
