The only way to get this photo was through a window, otherwise the starlings would not stay when I would open the door, but my first two arrived on the farm today!  and yes, I know my pen looks messy, but hey, spring cleaning and repair is coming.

    I don’t think anyone expects your fowl habitat to be pretty, especially with all that snow. As long as they are safe and happy, that’s what matters. I love Miss Puddin, when I was young I took in a Guinea pig, they are very sweet. I also had a pet Lab rat named Joe. He was real sweet and very smart! I had several other Joe’s over the years. I did get to the garden these last 2 beautiful days and planted one raised bed. First I had to remove and replant all the strawberry babies! Dug it all out and put in red potatoes at the bottom, then above that garlic and topped it with 4 different salad greens. My theory is everyone needs to get along with each other, if not I’ll reseed later and try something else. Last year I put strawberry Mama’s in the four corners but that’s not going to happen this year. I have 2 more raised beds to clean out of strawberries but no one has their yards protected to keep the deer off of them. I also put in 3 types of pole Peas. Beans will be just a bit later after I get the rows and frames up. Winter has been so mild here on the coast, snow pack is only at 35%. I need to get 2 more rain barrels installed!

    Yes, We caught on the news your storm hitting you. We normally get hit with at least 1 good snow storm that comes down the Frazier River Valley but not this year. For the last 7 years we did have some very hard long freezes that took out a lot of trees and plants here. I lost all but one small artichoke 2 winters ago. Didn’t even attempt to replant them last year but I do have some seed I saved! I need to get off island and get my onion starts, lost most of those last year when installing the new deer/rabbit fencing. That horseradish I harvested, I decided to replant all the tops in big containers. I’m going to try growing them “contained” and just dump one out when I need some roots and then replant it back in the pot. I have to be very careful with plants that run in my soil. The one’s I tried canning up were a fail except for 3 jars that sealed. Don’t know if I’m gonna try that again because I really do like the fresh much better. I’ll fiddle-faddle with the fails and see how they taste but I’m prepared to toss to the compost pile.
