I love this time of year! The weather is warming up, trees are turning green, the grass is growing and it's time to plant yummy veggies in the garden. I have big aspirations for the garden this year and have planted 4 kinds of potatoes, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, garlic, spinach, kohlrabi and beans so far along with a handful of herbs. Strawberries are growing in a container on the front deck and I have tomato plants in our living room almost 2 feet tall already! I'm excited for all the yummy food we'll be harvesting throughout the summer as long as we can keep the weeds under control!
Our chickens are getting bigger every day and Ryan is working on getting the coop constructed so we can get those hens outside! This is a pic from when they were still in the basement coop and just getting their feathers. They look like full grown birds now!
