Good Morning homestead friends!! It is beginning to actually be spring here in southcentral Michigan. The birds are singing their happy songs in the morning and you can smell the dirt warming. There are a few snow piles left in sheltered areas of the woods, but beyond that you can see the ground and a great deal of the mud is starting to dry up. Our dirt road is passable again without fears of sinking axle deep in a mud hole. Life is good!!
