Here It Comes

What a difference a day makes! It was 25 degrees this morning but still and clear.  Mike and I worked in the woods to start the day but by after lunch it felt so warm we were all anxious to plant something. The forecast, though not much above 50, looks good enough for early stuff. So we planted carrots and Patrice transplanted lettuce and at the end of the day we tilled for peas. Beets, radishes and onions will follow soon. 
At the end of the day we also did a big mechanical transition. Wood splitter off one tractor and rototiller on. Wood rack off the loader tractor, post hole digger on. Back blade off the little tractor, bed maker/mulch layer on.
 Looks like tomorrow will bring a whole new set of projects.
Evening haiku
When it once was dark
Twilight now brightens the trees
Frogs croak, days lengthen
