With all the attention I've given to Sue's zombie "autopsies" and the presence of our Cannibal Gangs prisoner, I've neglected other news...

...The early spring has let those of us still alive after another zompocalypse winter get an early start on restocking our food supplies...

08:15 AM #
...Most of the early work in the fields has been prepping the ground for later planting, but many hardy, frost-resistant crops are in.

08:18 AM #
Just about everyone has rows of kale growing. It will be some time before we risk planting most of the rest of our carefully hoarded seeds.

08:21 AM #
The other busy work teams are the scroungers and zombie hunter-killer units. I'm on the road with a group heading back to Wausau right now.

My home is still secure. Kurt has been checking on it regularly while I've been in the Farm Colonies. Now to clear out some zombies.

12:32 PM #
It's uncomfortable working in this cold rain, but the noise cover it provides is keeping nearby zombies from hearing us. #zompocalypse

We completed a sweep of the entire area defined by my outer perimeter (bordered by highway fences & the river). It's clear of Zs, for now.

02:43 PM #
My outermost defenses have always been porous, but a damaged fence and a fire that lured in a crowd of zombies led to lingering problems...

02:46 PM #
Now that the last of the big group of zombies that came in are gone (& the ground, thawed), we're going to add some new sturdy fence poles.

04:01 PM #
The fence is strong again. We had enough people to both work on it & deal with any zombie interlopers that came near us from the other side.
