Crazy Weather

March came into our part of Missouri like a Lamb..she's going out like a Lion.  It looks like we are going to find out just how tough early spring growth is around here (my poor parsley).  Freezing rain and sleet all morning.  I am sure glad we waited a week later for kidding to start this year!!  Other wise we would have new born baby goats on the ground today!!!  Last weekend it it was beautiful, in the 70's, we turned the A/C on in my office on on Thursday...

My Farm Life-Massey Ferguson

What once stored corn and beans now provides a weekend escape for those looking for a little R&R. That’s right, this former grain bin offers posh digs for up to four people and a view of a the Primghar Golf & Country Club’s eighth green. On the second floor, the cabin even offers an appropriately named Heckler’s Deck for the more boisterous guest.
The cabin was created by the three Edwards brothers, Kurt, Jim and Tom. They converted one of their 80-plus bins that had been in the family business for three generations and dubbed it Bill’s Cabin, after their late father who loved golf.
“Actually, my mother was the one who first thought of the idea, after seeing a story about one of these bins in a magazine,” says Kurt. “My dad thought that was just a crazy idea and laughed, but here it is.”
Apparently, Mom gets the last laugh.

"Spring Walk"

I know it's only March 12... but we are SO ready for spring!!  I went for my first official "wishing it's really spring" walk today.  Just thought I'd share some of the things I saw. We did get the goats wormed today.  Babies will start arriving April 1, 2011.  There are deer all over the place.. John saw 9 of them in a bunch this afternoon.
