That's february for sure.
Soon as the daffodils pop we get chilly willy weather - the snowflakes on saturday did look like glitter coming down in the barnyard. I have to admit the multiple snows 2 years ago gave me enough of a thrill that I can still wait a little longer for snow.
Last weeks warm weather did allow me to finish out all the new raised beds on the pasture end of the garden & I'm proud to say i built them all myself -- and did not even whack my thumb 1 single time - woowhoo.
We got all the strawberry plants transferred to their new beds and filled the other with fresh compost - and wow that stuff was beautiful - almost a year & 1/2 old --
with the chilly weather sending me back inside - I finally got my seeds ordered - loads of heirloom tomatoes & more. I went a little crazy and order more asparagus (3yr stock) hopefully my bed will sprout some great numbers this year since they are now 3 years old. They never made it to the table... we stood right there in the garden and gobbled them down - yummy. crunchy. delish. i want more more more.
Looking forward to a great day on the farm tomorrow - monday - happy birthday Abe & George! We have lots of friends coming out to celebrate in the sunshine.
ok, i'm gonna try my best to get more farm n garden pix up here this year along with art and other fun stuff.
