Spring's Arrival

Spring officially arrived on Saturday at 1pm, and we had snow on the ground. Again. The robins woke up and said BLEEP! No matter ... I just received my newsletter from the Home Depot and found I can plant cool-season vegetable seeds outdoors, including beets, carrots, radishes, parsnips and turnips, as well as leafy greens such as lettuce, spinach, chard, mustard and kale. I do believe I'm planting nearly all of these over spring break, including sugar snap peas. My plans are to go to Menards for seeds (the Alpine one has a huge selection! and they are usually around half price!) after work today.

Naomi had her kid last Monday. A beautiful mostly black baby girl! Lily is next!

Chris informed me that he'd like to see chickens in the garden within two weeks. Wow! He's going to finish up the chicken coop tomorrow.
