Happy Easter

In my last post I was so happy because it was warm and plants were coming up. Well that soon went away and we have had snow and rain and gloom for ages. Today was back to Spring time weather and I finally have some daffodils blooming. I was able to work in some of the flower beds for a bit which made my day. Worked for the rest of the afternoon and evening and soon off to bed.

Each year the yard gets a little easier, I figure this grass and weeds have been here for hundreds of years so it will take me a while to tame it. In the vegetable garden the garlic, chives, horseradish are showing up.. In the basement there is lettuce, peppers, basil, tomatoes, pumpkins started and more to come. Hope for many more vegs this year. Was reading that the extra produce is good for the chickens. I did d
iscover that the goats and chickens love pumpkin so any extra I will store next year.

Hope all had a good day and enjoyed your selves.

I think it may just be here, for a few days at least,lol

I actually have a window open!! and went outside in a tee shirt. Ah heavenly!! The daffy dills are poking their heads up and last night we had a little rain and now there is some green in the grass. The chickens and goats are out enjoying the sunshine as are the dogs. Now we can take longer walks so they can sniff and run and enjoy. I know this nice weather will not last so will enjoy what I can.

Work is going ok, lots quieter right now as the weather is not bad and
people are not traveling that much. As soon as it gets nicer it should
pick up and more people will be out on
the road.

In the next week or so I will start working on my shop so that hopefully I will be ready for some cake and catering orders this
summer. Which hopefully will be the start of some good things.

So wishing everyone well, nice weather and all good things.
