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!
