Spring is FINALLY here, and we couldn’t be happier! Even though the weather is still a little inclement, the grass is growing, the flowers are blooming, and the peas are ready to be sown. Oh, happy day! Okay, so maybe we’re waxing a little optimistic (there have still been more rainy days than sunny), but we’re not the only ones who are happy to have things growing. Our first batch of broilers have gone out to pasture and are having a wonderful time scratching in the fresh new grass.
Additionally, the winter garden that we planted last fall is exploding with growth…including weeds! It seems that every time we turn around there are weeds in every inch of the garden. And not just small easy to pull weeds but 3 inch tall invaders. Annoying as this is, it’s still a much needed change from the winter hibernation.
