    well I lucked out today. We had a new feed store open today. They were running a feed bag exchange promo. Take an empty feed bag and get a free bag of feed. I took the kids with me. We got 5 bags of feed for free. And they had laying crumbles buy one get one free. So we left with 7 bags of feed for $9

    Well a guy gave me 5 peach trees today. I just finished planting them. Some of them came with dirt, some didn't. Some had roots cut. I buried them all in my orchard, watered them with root stimulator and mulched them deep. The further back I get, the more I find rock hard red clay closer to the surface. These trees are gonna have to be tough to make it in the Iron Orchard.
