Farmwife's Journal-May 18th

Another beautiful day!  The ticks appear to be enjoying the weather too. :)  It seems like we see one or two a day on someone.  Thankfully we rarely find them attached - just crawling on us.
Today we got more of the garden planted.  Em and I put the beet seeds in, and then we all worked together to plant our onion sets. 
Mike pulled out a honeysuckle bush with his skid loader and tilled up some more grass to expand one of our gardens.  We will plant more onions there.
Today we broke ground for our new building! :)  Half of the building will be used for a sugar shack and the other half we will use for our farmer's market.  There will be a concrete slab behind the building that we will use for chicken butchering. 
Today a guy came out and got the slab formed up.  Tomorrow he'll have a crew of guys working to pour the concrete.
