A Week Away
So this week I took an opportunity to get away from the ranch for a while. I headed down to Florida to spend some time with my parents and generally pretend to be retired with them. There were games of putt-putt and scrabble, although sadly shuffle board did not make the list this year! Spring breakers and alligators where both observed in their natural habitats. Many wonderful stories from the past were exchanged, and it was all in all a great escape from the usual.
Back at the ranch now, its time to kick it into gear for the transition from the winter to the spring garden. I am putting together a succession schedule, so that each bed will be harvested and replanted over the course of the next several weeks. I have also re-grouped on several more major projects, recognizing that they must now go on hold, as the transition will demand most of my time for about a solid month.
Back to news of the ranch next week. Meanwhile, here are some highlights from my trip!
