There are some down sides to the mild winter we've had: I'm sure ticks will be a problem, since we didn't have much freezing weather to set them back. These temperatures in the eighties are making buds swell, and I'd be very surprised if we don't get a freeze that will kill the local peach crop.
Nothing's perfect, so I'm just going to enjoy the weather, no matter what the consequences.
I usually plant some potatoes on St. Patrick's Day, just because it's a family tradition to do so. However, I decided to plant them today on my daughter's birthday instead, mainly because the moon sign is right (I don't really think it makes a difference, but it can't hurt). I planted onions, too. I love going barefoot in the freshly tilled garden dirt, and that's what I did today as I ran the tiller and planted things.
Once again, the cows are out in the pasture, grazing. I think they're about done eating hay.
