Oh my word, is it farming time again?

It might seem early to a lot of folks, but farm folks know that farming is a year-round business. So I went to Farmer Tom's place Saturday to start working out what we'll be doing this planting season. Naturally, Jeb the Wonder Dog came along:

But we worked out a couple general plans. In the next couple weeks we'll be planting cold-weather crops, like lettuce, spinach, peas, broccoli, maybe cauliflower. Got to figure out where to put the corn, even though planting is a couple months off for that. Right now, too damn wet to work in the dirt, but carrots and onions aren't far off, either. Yeah, almost time to start planting.
