May Two Four

Well, things still weren't ready for us to plant on sunday...pesky nature. So we decided to head to the land anyways and build the fort/nest/camp etc and take a few supplies up. We arrived to Howie hard at work, continuing to get the soil ready. We built a house, table and watched a beauty of a sunset over the field. Saw a coyote (a huge one!), watched Ella swim in 4 mile creek, slept over, awoke to what sounded like a zillion birds, got some five rows wine from Wilma and Wes and tried to enjoy the relative down time before the mayhem of planting, watering, weeding, commuting cycle takes over grants' life. Here are a few pics from the weekend.

It begins!!!

We went out to the farm yesterday to set up a few things and see if we could do anything productive while we were waiting for the tilling. As we drove onto the farm I was ecstatic to see Howie out on the tractor tilling the land. Thanks Howie! We camped overnight and when we left this afternoon,  he was heading out to  do the final rotovating and then hill up my furrows. So starting tomorrow, and for many days to come after, i will be planting tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings.
