Its been a busy couple days, we have a new lamb,
a new litter of bunnies, with another one on the way soon and jar’s filled with the most wonderful homemade maple syrup. Its very light in color to me, the color of really good golden honey but the flavor is outstanding!
Look what’s popping up in the garden over the past 24 hours..I am so pleased to see this, the amazing thing is that the rest of the double rows (14 plants in total at the moment) are still under snow, which has been melting down this week. This one has only been barely uncovered for a few days.
the garlic is just starting to show hints of greens pushing up and though, so far, I can see about 60 to 80 of the bulbs have come though the winter.
The strawberry plants are all showing signs of new life and fresh tiny baby green leaves, I am so looking forward to those first fresh red berries of spring.. Hmm Strawberry Rubarb pie.
Honk has bonded very well with his new flock of ducks and has claimed Apple as his girl, here he is looking much more relaxed while out with us having some yard time.
Speaking of birds and yard time, here is a funny photo for you, this spot is one of my chickens favorite dust bathing spots, these two cracked me up, the space is really only big enough for one bird but these three were working hard to get the same space while at the same time as bathing. The ducks run for water, the chickens run for the front flower bed corner.
So what is up in your garden? I know that a number of you folks are quite a bit ahead of me in terms of garden and zone, still let me know what is new in your neck of the woods.
