This is the time of year when we clean up around the place and get fences mended and irrigation equipment ready.
Even though the weather hasn't been ideal spring weather and we're dragging our feet to get the irrigation equipment ready the irrigation canal filled with water this week meaning irrigation season has begun. With the rain and cold weather we'll wait a bit to start but if we don't get more moisture we'll have to start changing pipes even in the bad weather.
The other springtime chore that is inevitable is fixing fences. We have neighbors who don't feed their animals as well as we feed ours and they lean on the fences to eat the grass-which is always greener on the other side- on our side of the fence. So we have a fence between us that needs fixed as well as one that the calves have been squeezing through by the house to eat my flowers and lawn.
Do you have any springtime chores you do yearly?
