And just like that

Spring has finally arrived.

Several days of 75+ weather and a rain storm has rid us of the snow..aside from a few patches here and there.

Just in time for the fruit trees and berry bushes to arrive 


Soon birds and the bunnies will be returned to their summertime homes so grass can be nibbled and dirt can be scratched, but best of all, the mini garden I have going on in my living room will all make its way to the warmth of the greenhouse.


Onions, peppers, eggplants, celery, cabbages, chives, and six different kinds of tomatoes are all ready to go. It will be nice to have a jumpstart on veggies this year for not only ourselves, but for the fine folks at the farmers market that we will soon be a vendor at.


Have a great weekend folks! 

Better

It is now my turn to work through a illness of some sorts, everyone in the house has had the pleasure of some type of cold, I myself am currently working through bronchitis…I blame the lack of bacon in my life, when I eat bacon I’m not sick, when I am the only person in my house eating bacon, I am the only person not sick. Therefor I need more bacon in my life.

We are currently surrounded by a winter wonderland, we had a good 2 feet last week and last night we had a mix of rain and snow, giving us this view


However trying to leave the house this morning to feed the animals was a real….treat

Luckily Toph is strong than I am, because I was unable to open the door.

I have finished the tiger 


I started a blanket for Lorelai’s best friend who just turned 11 and I am hoping it will be finished by her birthday party

I’m on day 8 and almost ready to decrease. 

I have also started a veil for one of my best friends who will be getting married this coming fall

We are excited for the upcoming year on the farm, we have ordered several fruit trees, we have wood to build some animal shelters so we can get cows and sheep within the next two years and we also have left over free lumber that was given to us, that Toph wants to use to build a cabin out in the woods….he may watch too much Alaska The Last Frontier 😉

Hope you folks have a fantastic day!
