Anywho, the first signs of spring are starting to show...
|So stinkin' cute|
|Grow baby, grow|
I've started seeds for Roma and Yellow Pear tomatoes, pickling cukes, snap peas, and broccoli. I will direct sow my spinach and lettuce and am planning on doing another planting of broccoli later in the season for a fall harvest. I am looking into container gardening for carrots. Research has led me to re-think my potato set-up. I will continue to use the stacked tire method but instead of filling each subsequent layer with dirt I'll use straw. Folks are suggesting ti works...we'll see. I've got big plans for this year!!
Last but not least, spring is returning because......
My one and only hen, Ella, started laying again!!!! She's been a trooper over the winter with just the nasty roo, Indian, for company. I guess he's a little bored only having one hen to look out for because he has gotten a little testy with Mr. Awesome© and the Oompa-Loompas. Challenging them and rushing like he's ready to throw down. He may just fancy himself an MMA superstar. It's not like there's much thinking going on in their tiny little brains! Once the little ones are big enough to move to the coop he may very well find himself in freezer camp! He'd make a nice plate of fried chicken.
Happy early spring everyone!!
