|Welcome to spring in northeast Texas. We have an 80% chance of snow and ice tomorrow night and next week it may be in the 60's for Spring Break. Perfect timing for us to send you our irregular newsletter. Good intentions of a newsletter every few months are a faded memory. I used to think that winter was a time for a farmer to sit back by the fire and relax, read seed catalogues and nap in the afternoon. That is only an image Norman Rockwell one could come up with in his native New England where the snow is roof top high. Here at our farm the chores seem to never end, the list of tasks get longer than the hours in a day and days in a week. We hope you find a few items of interest in this newsletter and if you have any questions please call or email us.
