Kathy Jo, I'm so sorry to hear of your daughter's divorce and the upheaval it has caused in her little family, and for you and your DH. Thank God she has you to help her.

I think your cold front was here a few days ago. Spring is late here, but at last some grass is feeding the cattle and sheep. My neighbor's haystack is gone and he even had to buy a semi load of hay before there was enough grass.

Hubby hitched up the rototiller and went to a neighbor's. It was nice and sunny when he left, but the sky has been leaking, a couple of brief showers in the last half hour. Thankfully, the temperature is about 60. I am busy hauling manure to my garden. Some of the early seeds I planted are popping up, others are sure taking their time, or might never appear. Rain sent me inside for a cup of tea, and I no sooner than got it made and the shower was over. It's gonna be an in and out kind of day, good thing I started early.

I have about half a box of bruised apples (a co-op write off) that I brought home to slice up and put in the freezer. The horses will get the worst ones. There is a certain amount of spoilage with any produce department, and since I help out there on produce delivery day, I bring home a lot of usable vegies and fruit that only needs trimming. My neighbor's chickens benefit too as some of the tender salad mix seems to be only good for a few days.

Jay, that milk jug and blanket protection sounds like it would have been enough. I hope they made it. I need to locate my rolls of remay so I can set out a few more plants soon.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
