That's It Then

Bloody bugger. Spring's here. So that's it then.
All that delicious abdication of responsibility for the outdoors that goes hand in hand with winter is finished.
Those 11 acres* will need sorting, ploughing, harrowing, seeding, planting, cutting, taking care of....oh my God I think I need a drink.

* Outrageous overstatement. I only have to till and tend one acre. The other ten can sod off.

Tilling one acre can lead to two achers........

Plant alfalfa. Your neighbours will love it, bring their livestock round to graze it or cut it for free. I'm giving cutting rights away this year. You could sell cutting and grazing rights.

You just have to sit back and watch it grow. With a drink in your hand.

Yes, Ron, a nice glass of vino will make everything seem better...and let the little daisy be.

My pal Richard Mabey (enormous sound of a name being dropped)says that spring is here when your foot covers five daisies. I think. So it looks like you're alright for a bit.
