Well I see it has been nearly a year since I last wrote! Spring is early this year and a lot has already been planted. As for the 70 acres, we have been doing a lot of observing of sectors and discovering what is growing where. Didn't accomplish a lot last year but feel we have come a long way in understanding the uniqueness of the land we purchased. So much of it is already just perfect. Trying to get a feel as to how we want to fit in without disturbing too much. The back corner has a beautiful stand of hemlock with a winding brook running through it. It is like a hidden paradise. So much to manage as the front acreage has diseased beech which needs to come down so as not to spread more. Meanwhile the sun shines and I am ever thankful for all the blessings in my life!
