Spring A Time For Work On The Farm

Spring Time Means More Work On The Farm

The farm is a great thing to have, but you need to realize it is a place that rarely gets any type of rest. The winter season if you have livestock is actually a very hard time because you will have the ice buckets to go out and take care of. However, when you have a smaller farm and are running a garden as well you know that Spring is going to be the main time for you to get all of your work done. So what all type of work is needed to be done in Spring?

Alpaca Shearing

This is one of the biggest things that we are going to have to deal with in the spring time. That is the shearing of the alpaca. This is a lot of work and it is something that we have to do because it is going to take and get the alpaca completely sheared and ready for the summer weather. However, what you need to realize is they only get shorn once a year and that is in the spring so they can grow all of their fiber back before the winter months come along.

Garden Planting

The garden is one of the biggest ways that we save money on our food bill in the middle of winter and all summer long. So the planting of the garden is another big job that we have to do in the middle of spring. So this is something that takes up a lot of time. What is even worse is if you do not get the garden Opps 100 Pcs Glow in the Dark Garden Pebbles for Walkways and Decor in Blue New Price: $13.99 Old Price: $13.99 (as of 06/09/2017 14:40 UTC) done properly in the middle of spring then you will have a failed garden. This means we are usually out in the garden for hours on end trying to get everything straightened out and that is what we really like to do because the garden is right by the playground for the kids and that means they are able to keep on playing all day long outside if they are not helping us in the garden.


Repair Work From Winter

Sadly you are not able to get out into the farm Melissa & Doug Fold and Go Wooden Barn With 7 Animal Play Figures New Price: $33.09 Old Price: $49.99You Save: $16.90 (as of 06/09/2017 14:40 UTC) to make a fix all the time on everything that breaks. As much as we would love to, the weather usually only allows for emergency type of repairs. So when spring rolls around we have a tendency to have to go out and make all the repairs that were emergency type and make them into a complete repair. Then we have to go back and make sure those repairs are holding up to guarantee that we are not going to have any issues with the repairs that we have made.

Farm work is a great thing, but it is a job that is going to leave you constantly finding something to do. Now, we have just given a quick list of what we have to do each spring, but it is going to be something that we do. The list is rather extensive and we know that you do not have a lot of time to sit down and read the entire list. However, this short list will give you a good idea on why your farmers always look so tired in the middle of spring.
