Another Wonderful Day

What beautiful weather again today! Already got a farmer's tan going on. Kevin took the day off and we accomplished many tasks around the farm. He put a ton of manure on the garden and tilled it. We got most of the lawn mowed, and many flower beds and trees mulched around. I worked on my wattle fence a bit although it doesn't seem to be going to well. I might have to rethink that project. We picked all the violets and started a batch of violet jelly. The kids happily played in the sunshine, mud, and the creek all day after finishing 2 more days worth of schoolwork. They are pushing to finish up as fast as possible now that we are having such good weather. In the evening Mom and Dad came down and we planted potatoes, arugula, beets, turnips and peas. We will get to the onions and broccoli in a day or two. This is one of my favorite times of the year.
