Finally, it's gardening season. Hubby tilled; I planted. This year, 2 more sweet cherry trees, 2 honey crisp apples, and 1 Fuji. My 2 new peach trees from last year are looking fabulous--covered in blooms about to open--my honey bees ready to pounce. This year I out-smarted the underground critters who dine on bulbs by planting a riot of daffodils, tulips, dahlias, lilies, and gladiolus in my stock tank gardens. Easy pickin'. No weedin'.











And the milk keeps on comin'. (Check out the cream layer on their milk now that they're on green grass.)





Cute little bouquet of "old-fashioned cream separators" I have set out for my milk customers.

Hi MaryJane! I love all the pictures! I think I saw some of them on Facebook. You will be making a lot of butter I can see! Two days ago I put AppleButter and HoneyButter out on grass for the first time this year. They could only go out for an hour or two but they loved it! They come running back when you call them!
The greenhouse has been very busy, but good! I’ll find more pictures later, anyways here’s some flowers to brighten your day!

I live on a small farm of seventy acres called Green Forest Farm, with 10 horses, a donkey, 5 beef cows, 2 beef heifers, 3 Hereford heifers, around 60 chickens, 8 dogs, my amazing cow, AppleButter, and her little Jersey calf HoneyButter!

Good morning Sydney! Yes, flowers always brighten a day. I had to slowly adapt my girls to pasture also. I think a cow in the spring would surely eat herself sick, so yeah, two hours, then three, etc.

Would love some photos of AppleButter and HoneyButter.
