Yesterday, Mike and I tromped around looking over the pumpkin patch site! We also met with apple consultants (Bill and Jim from Kickapoo Orchard in Gays Mills, WI) to help us plan our planting of our first group of trees in about 3 weeks.
Then…a calf was stuck in the creek, Mike jumped in to save it, Rick pulled them out (calf first - then Mike), and the calf was tended to by Rick and David. Mike thawed out and so did the calf!
We are beginning to see some green grass here in Northwest Illinois!
Spring has to be on it's way!
