around the homestead-beautiful day

It was a sunny and beautiful day today. It got up to 65, and it was splendorific as we have not seen anything over 55 since before Thanksgiving. That is a pretty long cold snap for Ga.
Since it was such a beautiful day, we spent most of the afternoon outdoors catching up on chores and getting late winter stuff done around the place. Manthing was downing and cutting next years wood and I worked at pruning back the grapes, blueberries, and quince. I also started to clean up the herb beds and then harvested some carrots, turnips, mizuna, pak choy and some other funky Asian green. Because the weather is so nice and is going to continue to be for a few days, it was a good time to get clothes washing caught up. And, of course, we had to spend some time watching the baby goats.
