I just got in from a hike. The only thing I noticed was some honeysuckle was turning green. No Redbud action yet.

Did some trail clearing on my Hart county farm today and couldn’t resist the temptation to check on 2 of my early producing black patches. Nothing big enough to see in the leaf litter so I backed out after a few minutes. Will check again after this week’s rains.

I really hated the stripping of tobacco it was a nasty job being in a stripping room with hardly any heat so the tobacco wouldn’t go out of case and back in the day before bailing you tied it in hands . I wish dirty jobs had been around back then mid seventies would made a good episode.

One Saturday when I was a Senior in high school I went from my cross country meet straight to the barn to hang tobacco. My mom was so mad at me for ruining my sweats that day. Coach wasn’t to happy either!
