Farmer's day from spring until late autumnBy the minute. He needs to have time all - to put things in order in the hen house, cowshed, calf, pigsty, watering the garden. Therefore, you have to get up very early. In addition, from May to October, cows are driven out to pasture. Shepherd takes them at 5-6 in the morning. And by this time the farmer should be on his feet.
In the spring, new animals are added to care for animalsCares - plowing and planting a garden. First you need to dig up the ground, caked under a thick layer of snow, then add fertilizer.
