The hens decided to dig up the pansys that I had just planted.....
I headed to recycling with 5 bags of paper, cans, glass, and 50 plastic containers.
On my way I went to see the herd.The cows were itching off their winter coats and the calves were enjoying the shade from inside the old pig shelters.
I wet and checked out the community gardens to see who was planting this morning.
Its been a very intense project getting this garden ready for people to raise their own healthy food.
I will post a more detailed blog post about it next week.
The two pullets are now free ranging further around the property and have been exploring all the blackberry bushes and the asparagus patch. I am so happy that these two have not turned into roosters like the rest did.
All the inside plants were moved outside to enjoy the sunshine this morning.
I love this yellow hibiscus.
I hope the snow is really gone. A week ago we had a small snow squall and a downpour. Some places got 5-12 inches of snow. My garden and coop was covered with about 2 inches. What a sight it was!
They have processed several hundred acres in the past 2 days.
A local green thumb gardener donated 20 large perennials so that the local health clinic could beautify their little flower garden at their driveway entrance. I volunteered to go get the plants this mroning and organize a planting party for tonight at 7 pm when it is cooler to weed, plant and mulch.
I traded rhubarb for these plants. All different kinds and all different colors.
In a month my garden club will come to this location for a full garden tour when everything is in full bloom.
On my way home I saw the cows in a different field up on a hill, under the apple trees, chewing their cud and swatting at flies.
My favorite cow, Wanda, recognized my truck and gave me a nod of acknowledgment.
Time for lunch.
Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and beet greens. Beef from my farm friend, potatoes from my garden last fall and beet greens from another farm up the road.
What have you been doing today and what did you have for lunch??
