Cut a little firewood, seeded some wildlife plots & picked up some sticks from the picnic grounds.

Dinner (lunch for you city folks biggrin.gif) consisted of pork steaks, fried potatoes 'n' onions & steamed, buttered cabbage (in the foil wrap).

That looks like a nice property. It's nice to see the longer days and warmer temps. We had snow here today but only an inch or so.

Nice to be out and about. 
Wishin' spring weather would hurry and get here.
They are calling for rain / icy rain / snow here the next 4 days and below normal temps at least the next 7 days.

Is your pond spring fed ?

Your day makes me homesick for spring! We have at least another six weeks to wait, but I feel happy for you having a wonderful day--- enjoy every one that comes along.

Looks like a nice little get-a-way spot there.  How far away from home?  Thanks for sharing!

No springs, just ground run-off.  Two ponds on the farm, the other one is 4-5' low, doesn't have enough "watershed", but it was the only decent place to put it!  This one was built in 1965, the other one a few years later.

 

30 miles from home, my folks bought the 190 acres in the mid-1960's.  No one's lived there for the last 10 years, gravel stops at the house, dirt road the rest of the way in. ~~  Lowell
