Springtime on the farm=Magic

One cannot walk far on New O’Hana Farm without seeing the unfolding of Spring around every corner.

We have been blessed to have several planting areas and pots bursting with new growth and colors of Spring!

Praying you are enjoying this time of year and are finding areas to grow your happiness.

Psalm 1:3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields it’s fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither-whatever they do prospers.

Strange (Phenomenon) Goo in Tree

Here on New O’Hana Farm, TN we have sticks laying about continually. Then the Lord sends the rain and the wind and instead of sticks, we have large limbs falling from our old oak trees.

Bring out the ladder. Start up the saw! We have spent several hours cutting, hauling, and stacking and we still aren’t close to being done.

We took all the limbs from one giant oak, we discovered this strange muddy substance. Is this Goo inside her large trunk her way of beginning the rotting process? If you know, can you share with a comment?

The trees that are dead, decaying, and one that was hit by lightening and falling in to the road has to come down. But, we are also pruning our other trees and PLANTING NEW TREES!!!! Yay!

We pray we are past the last frost because our Green’s Lab is holding precious Fruit Trees, Crepe Myrtle Trees and Bushes and Vegetable and Fruit Seedlings!

A bible verse that comes to mind when we stand back and try to decide which limb needs trimming, is John 15:2 This is from the King James Version because it has been my favorite since I was a little girl. The Lord made us. The Lord loves us and He is patient to prune us allowing us to grow strong and become the very best that we can be.

John 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit He taketh away:and every branch that beareth fruit, He purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

Thank you Dear Lord! Have a blessed and beautiful day! Don’t forget to leave comments if you know what this brown goo is! :)Jen

Tilling Our Expanded Garden

Our 2 Helpers in the Garden tonight are our dogs Daisy and Oreo in the photo at the end of the gallery. Or should I say Our 5 Helpers. Daisy, our English Bulldog is pregnant with at least 3 puppies we saw on her ultrasound!!!)

Daisy and Oreo love to be with us every time we go outside. Daisy has quit charging the tractor that she must believe is a large grumbly beast trying to eat her momma! Now if we can get her to believe the motorcycle and lawn mower are not giant beasts to conquer, we have a complete victory!

TRACTOR LOVE

I’m very much in love with our tractor and the color pink! For a moment I was laughing picturing my husband’s face when he opened the barn door and saw the tractor! Surprise!!! How do you think he would react if I paint her pink? ๐Ÿ™‚

We have expanded our garden in a BIG WAY! And we are very excited to get the dirt tilled several times before we begin to plant. This large area by the barn has been the stomping ground for our goat families that we had last year.

Spring has arrived and we work around the rainy days. Cross our fingers and toes, after April 15, we hope to begin planting vegetable and fruit seeds and show you our progress.

Our prayer for everyone is that spring is bringing the hope of new life and growth. It can be both plant and personal. Hope your spring is shaping up well!

Double Ruffled Lily

New O’Hana Farm is full of surprises! Today, we are showing off Lily. Us girls in the family love Tiger Lilies, but this one is not a Tiger and is doubled. For someone that knows their plants, please, am I right?

Ornate Kwanso Daylily-+Ornate means Intricate, Embellished, Adorned…

If we walk to The Gardens, The Chicken Coop, The Barn, and The Geese and Duck Yard, Lily is on each corner of this old wooden fence. We become focused each morning and evening on feeding and watering the animals, that Lily and her twin at the other end of the fence, went unnoticed for a day and a half.
