The Colors Of Spring

The weather has been beautiful beyond words the last three days. There's an old saying "A picture is worth a thousand words." I'm going to let the picture speak for me.

A Sunny Saturday

We've had a beautiful, sunny Saturday. It was hard to stay inside on a day so beautiful but William burned a pile of brush this morning. That kept me inside because of the smoke. Drat it!

Maybe tomorrow afternoon I can weed the Swiss Chard and plant the squash....both the yellow squash and zucchini. I may get the cucumbers planted too.

Our nights are going to be cool for a few days. The temperatures are predicted to be in the forties but the daytime temps are supposed to be in the mid-seventies. I think the soil will be warm enough to do some planting. I'm going to try it anyway and if I have to I'll plant over. :)

It's been a quiet day here today. Nothing much happening. When those seeds start popping out of the ground then there'll be excitement around here. Or the eggs starting pipping!!! There'll be excitement everywhere. LOL

It's Spring Again.....

The trees have new leaves, the grass is green, flowers are blooming every where, birds are singing and the spring peepers are at their noisiest. Children are running around wearing flip flops and shorts. Daylight is lingering longer and the sun is warm again. All signs of spring.

I have itchy fingers to start digging in the dirt. I've already transplanted six tomato plants, the swiss chard is up and growing and the lettuce that I planted in the containers is almost ready to start eating. Fresh salad is on the menu in a few days.

We have twenty-four baby rabbits in most every color rabbits come in except for white. They are beautiful little bunnies!!

The incubators are going. One has forty-one chicken eggs in it and the other one is full of duck, goose and turkey eggs. The chicken eggs should start hatching on March 29th. The others will be about a week and a half later.

Another spring. Another chance to watch the Earth come alive again. Another chance to put a garden together. And hopefully another chance to eat the delicious vegetables from that garden!
