Wow what a difference a few weeks can make in the garden....I am so excited to get my garden going that I just couldn't wait. Parsnips,Carrots, Chinese Celery, Radish's, Potato's,Lettuce,Spinach,and Onions have all joined the Peas and are now in the ground as of Sunday and the Garlic has been happily relocated! I am definitely not having dilutions about the frost being gone as of yet...We will just have to watch the weather,be on our toes for frost warnings and take the necessary precautions of covering.

Barrel of Monkeys

The boys sure had fun rolling down the the hill with our old dryer drum. The dryer went ka-poot last fall and after line drying our clothes all summer our family realized we could live with out the dryer. While my friends can not imagine living with out one we have done just fine. I have to admit I do love a nice soft fluffy dried towel straight from the dryer like the rest of you but nothing beats the smell of pulling fresh sun dried laundry off the the line.

Garden turned

The snow has finally melted and we were able to get our hands dirty, turned the garden beds and thanks to the bunnies we were able to add lots of poop to the beds this past weekend. The leaf mulch from last fall decomposed perfectly and we were rewarded with a bounty of worms and night crawlers (Shhh... don't tell,the chickens just couldn't help themselves to a few of the plump little morsels).

The sugar snap peas were put in on Monday, lets hope with the upcoming rain and snow warnings for this week that they will be safe and sound.

We found a surprise under the leaf mulch...My garlic was already springing up! We put the garlic into a container to be relocated.

The chives are already up and at em'... I have been craving chives, so their timing is perfect!
