Green and Grade A!!!

     The seasons have changed, indeed.  No, don't put your tomato plants out yet--there's another cold night or two still to come.  But it's Spring!  Just a hint last week and for-sure-certain this week.  The grass is already lush in the pastures.  The loafing goats look comfortable and satisfied lying in the sun on a green cushion.  We imagine them telling each other, "Now this is what I remember!"
     And speaking of green, Decimal Place got the green light from the state Department of Agriculture--we're Grade A again, once more legal to sell cheese in Georgia.  The word is spreading fast, and dibs are being called on major quantities of cheese-to-be.  Fortunately, almost all of the does have kidded, so we have a good supply of milk for cheese-making.
     Mary didn't take the big prize at the Flavor of Georgia competition in downtown Atlanta, a couple weeks back, but a bunch of folks were able to sample her cheese, and tasting is believing.  Following up that event with the news that Decimal Place is Grade A again, plus the springtime weather this week . . . the farm is just buzzing.
     I said, hold off on the tomatoes, but Mary and crew have been busy enough in the garden.  Last fall's onions and cabbages arev looking great.  Now the other beds have been turned over, and we have spinach and more planted.  Playing in the dirt makes Mary very happy.
