It has been a rough start to the year, but hopefully we will be back on track. It was warm this weekend and I got a lot done in the garden. I am not pie eyed, it is supposed to snow 8 inches tonight.
The seedlings are up in the greenhouse. The spinach, lettuce, and peas are all looking good. Please no comments on the careful spacing.
I was able to till up the garden using a good old fashioned shovel. I was very excited by the amount of worms in the soil and the progress of my garlic and onions. I even had a couple of carrots overwinter. My asparagus is also starting to peak out.
I need to plant more crocus. They are such happy little buggers. The problem is they start to show and then get crushed by snow.
The orchard looks wonderful. The garden looks good. The flower seeds I sowed are coming up. I'm ecstatic with how things are shaping up outdoors. On the house front, I am keeping busy. It started raining heavily and I was stuck going indoors.
When it started to rain I had to do something inside. I settled on pumpkin cake. An odd choice for spring. I also bottled my Giggling Gooseberry wine. I am super happy with it. I was afraid it would be teary eyed tart, but it is just right.
It is getting harder to work on indoor things, as I love being outdoors. Next weekend I will be turkey hunting with my bow. Hopefully, we will be able to do a little fishing. What is going on in your neck of the woods? I leave you with a few beautiful sunsets.
