Pony Poop

So we received a couple packages in the mail for someone with
 the same address as us except for the town, next town over. 
I took the packages to the other house, which isn't far 
from our house, and on the way I saw a sign for "free manure".
 Well if you know me you can guess how long it took until 
my truck bed was full of poop. The farm I got it from have a
 couple pony's. They spread hay and saw dust on the floor
 and pile the manure mix next to their barn. See it
 pays to do something good once in a while.

Carrots, the over-wintered kind

Dara was weeding the raised beds yesterday for the upcoming 
spring planting and came across some carrots that made it 
through the winter. All three varieties we plant made it through
 our very mild winter this year. If carrots will just sit in
 the ground and wait to be eaten I may plant a ton
 this year, late summer though early fall, and harvest
 throughout the winter. We plan on eating them tonight.
