Cocopeat disk for Amaryllis

This video shows you how quickly the Cocopeat disk rehydrates ready for planting.

This is the start of having winter flowers at my house.

I always feel better when it is cold outside, seeing plants grow inside. It makes getting through the dark of winter easier.

Fingers crossed that these two bulbs start growing quickly so I can enjoy them all the sooner.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Still celebrating our anniversary

It would be 49 years today. Too bad Bob isn’t here to celebrate with me.

Missing the love of my life, but celebrating all the years we had together.

December 1, 1973 — Bob and Susan

Our four wonderful children are the product of our love. I couldn’t ask for more.

End of November

The wind made this day wicked, otherwise it wouldn’t have felt so cold. The temperature was 25, but the windchill was 15. Brrrrr!

After tending to things outside, I hurried back inside my house.

The house felt much warmer after returning to the kitchen where a loaf of bread was baking. Having the oven on made my kitchen cozy.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Corn being combined

Like Bob, I watch my renters working to get the corn out of the field.

Hopefully, the rain will not stop this harvest. These acres are the last fields of the year for the Maass Family.

Freezing to capture birds at feeder

I was only going to be outside for a few seconds, but the birds kept flitting to the feeder.

The blue jay is bossy. When it comes to the feeder, other birds scatter. But when I’m trying to get bird pictures, the blue jays become shy.

I’m heading into town today to get more peanuts at Pulaski Warehouse. I buy the 50-pound bag. It’s unbelievable how much those birds eat, along with sunflower seeds.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
