When I come home at night from my "real" job, and after being greeted and almost knocked down but two rambunctious labs, I get the daily updates. Today was ..."we got a lot planted today" "we were soooo busy". Those are good words to hear after what seemed to be a too long winter. James started the water falls a few days ago and it is a refreshing and comforting sound as I walk the dogs at midnight. The crocus are starting to push through the soil as are the daffodils so I know spring REALLY is just around the corner.
Little Seeds and how they grow
There you have it ... what comes first the root or the leaves. The roots win out every time and tomorrow we are starting out seeds as well.
Peppers - lots of them, a few annuals and many perennials.
Some seeds are fun to plant - peppers and tomatoes aren't to bad because of their size but petunias are another story - tiny tiny tiny.
Greenhouses are Gearing Up
Douglas and James are almost through setting up benches in the greenhouses and pulling all those miscellaneous weeds they just seem to pop up. We've received our first shipment of plugs. Geraniums, petunias, lavender and other herbs, spikes and vincas, begonias and impatiens to name a few. Now the fun begins -- planting them all.
Did some one order snow???
This was one snowstorm that was predicted right and despite the fact that we really don't want anymore snow, it was a beautiful sight to wake up to this morning.
I've got chickens on my mind.
Tell me how cute they are. Stopped at TSC in Oneida on the way home from church and while they didn't have chicks in yet they were all set up for getting them in this week. Just my luck cause I think chicks are adorable. My lovely little henny penny gave us two more eggs this weekend. I think she deserves some little babies to keep her company. Of course, today was a moment of weakness.
Taking care of chickies in the spring, summer and autumn is ok but hauling water in the middle of winter is just not my idea of fun.
