Yeah, I went farming this weekend. It was brief.

As usual when I go to The Farm, Jeb the Wonder Dog came with me. Yeah, he had his nose out the window the entire way over:


As you may recall from last week's visit, which dealt mainly with planning -- note the snow on the ground -- the beds were full of last year's late crops:


Which, of course, were quite dead:


We decided that this weekend we would clear those out. We did:


Both sets of beds:


Alas, when we went to weed and till the ground, the soil was still frozen about 2 inches deep. So, that was pretty much it. Hoping for better activity next weekend, as the weather has been quite nice. We'll see if it stays that way -- nasty predictions for later this week. We'll see. Farming is a game of opportunity, after all.
