Happy Easter!

It started raining here in late March. That brought an end to wildfires. Now the farmers and ranchers are trying to burn pastures and CRP acres in between the rains. The CRP acres have to be burned off by a certain date before the birds want to build nests in the grass. We saw farmers planting corn yesterday so it must be dry enough to do some no till planting.

Do you have zoning laws to help with the water issues that you're having with the farmer?

Thinking about tomatoes makes me hungry for them. There's nothing like a homegrown tomato. My cool weather crops...peas, lettuce, spinach, and onions are growing. We've picked two meals of asparagus, a spring favorite of ours. The lilac bushes are in full bloom. It's been at least 10 years since they've looked this pretty. The drought and late frosts usually limit the blooms. Tulips and daffodils have been beautiful along with the flowering trees and bushes.

I hope everyone else is having a pretty spring.
