So why the void in communication? Nothing earth-shattering. I noticed the comments dwindling on each blog post and so more and more it felt like I was shouting into the void, the same issue I had when writing my weekly newspaper column. People rarely write in to tell you when they enjoy a newspaper column or have a thought about it. Letters to the editor pretty much come in after you've said something that's gotten readers riled up, and so it's probably the same thing with blogging.
Spring is also the busiest time of year around here. It's not only around the homestead, it's socially, financially, and work-wise as well. And so writing about living tends to take a back seat to just living. Someday I will find a way to manage the period from about April 15 to May 31 but this year, it once again became a time of trying to find time for things.
In the meantime, here are some pics of what we've been up to.
|It was an abundant spring.|
|Mother Nature graced us with her beauty.|
|Planting, harvesting and preserving.|
|As usual, too many one one crop. Luckily my friends like carrots.|
|The row covers worked out nicely, kept a lot of insect and wind problems at bay.|
|Now we have smoky sunrises.....|
