Greetings and Holykisses,
Meet two new chicklets hatched inside the potting shed. They've now taken up residence in my craft room in the house and are hoping to get a few more friends tomorrow. It really feels like spring when the babies start coming. See their little egg tooths on the fronts of their beaks?
Today I mowed and worked in the garden much of the day. Then this evening; loaded manure and old hay in the barn and hauled wheelbarrow loads to put around the blackberry's and raspberrys in the garden. I think we only planted 3 raspberry canes last year and boy oh boy have they multiplied. And we have more blackberry plants than ever. I see cobblers and maybe even jelly in our future!
Tomorrow I'm looking forward to re-tilling the garden and am very tempted to plant tomatoes and then start hauling more old hay mulch to those as well. I know It's really pushing it... we could still get a freeze... or a frost at the very least. Plant, or wait? Plant or wait?....
I made the mistake a few years back of planting bamboo around the goldfish pond. I had no idea how that stuff takes over. It comes up everywhere now. So today, I started cutting alot of it down. Looking on the bright side; our catfish have gotten pretty big, so probably need to save a few canes, and ask Trent to make some fishing poles!
Everything seems to be coming to life here. The peonies are doing great! The hydrangeas, azaleas, snowball bush and lilacs are all perkin up, and today I noticed even the glads are poking out of the ground. I'll try to remember my camera when I go out tomorrow.
Well it's late, and I don't know about you but I'm tuckered out.
Good night all!
