Getting close to planting time

November 27, 2013

So here’s the update on our work at Woodwynn Farms. The final layer of soil (purchased topsoil to add sand to the existing clay-ish soil) was brought in a slinger today. The air smelled like earth as the dirt rained down into the old silo pit.

It was like walking on fresh fallen snow — sort of.
