It sure is nice to see the lovely signs of spring.  We bought some strawberries yesterday and planted them in the arbor that Matt made last year.  The strawberries we planted last year did not grow.  We had planted them from roots that we bought at Wal-Mart, this year we actually bought plants at Lowe's and hopefully we will actually get to see strawberries develop!

We went to the farm auction down the road Saturday and it started out as nice day then the clouds rolled in and the last part of the sale it decided to rain and the wind picked up.  Needless to say I was soaked and tired of standing and ready to hit the nice hot shower by the time we made it home.   We did buy ourselves a hay elevator and a beater for the paddles to put on our manure spreader (2 bucks), can't beat that price!  We also bought a finishing mower to mow the apple orchard with!  

Well, off to New Jersey after today for the rest of the week, it will be a nice break away for a while.  The walls are closing in on me and I am ready for a small change!  Hope you have a great week!

Sounds like it was worth it to go to the auction- but I bet that shower felt good!
