Springtime in the Fields

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...




It's unlikely (though not impossible) that we'll have another frost, so the preparation of the fields and the planting of the crops is a priority of local farmers right now. The weather has been dry enough that farmers can get into the fields and all across the county, they are taking advantage of this window of opportunity. It's important to get the seeds in the ground early so the plants have a chance to mature before August and September which are typically hot, dry months here in southern Kentucky.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
