Done with snow!

Maya Angelou told it like it is! I am so sick of snow and ready for Spring.  I have my seed starting flats out and went through two bags of starting mix already! Being I am in Zone 5b, I have PURPLE peas and tomatoes and peppers growing downstairs under awesome grow lights.  I am READY!

Heatwave, Hens, Hay & Harmonica

Our poor chickens don’t like cold toes, so I shlep out some hay out to carpet their yards.  It warmed up enough for them to want to come out.  I play you some Happy New Year song 😉

A Last Vestige of Winter

Being a YouTube noob I of course thought I had already posted this. Anyway, it’s up now.

In the meantime, I am trying to get bread baked today, five hours of school done (some done while the bread happens, anything can be turned into a math/physics/reading lesson!), and the house packed up.  We are moving after only seven months because our neighbors’ dogs’ barking has become unbearable, despite our best efforts at communication.  Moving on, we went out to the new place yesterday and I pushed some stakes into the ground and marked off where I want to put my garden, while skirting deer tracks! It’s going to be an adventure, but I am more than ready for Spring!
