First Day Of Spring!

Olallieberries Not Quite Ripe Yet!

What do you think of when you think Spring? Nice weather, Baby animals, Spring flowers and vegetables? I think of ALL those things and more! And we have had some really nice weather lately all through March.

A couple of weeks ago I was going to go down to my local Farm Supply store and buy about 3 or 4 hens. We have a small dog run that I was going to turn into their cage and have Wes build a henhouse. Ummm, fresh eggs!! But I do live in a neighborhood and unfortunately, it is against the city ordinance here. With hens at least you don't have the early morning crowing, but somehow, I could just see my neighbors complaining about something.


Gardening, now there is something I CAN do! Last Saturday I planted some vegetables in my container garden; tomatoes, pole beans and pattypan squash along with a big bin of herbs. And after sampling my very first Olallieberries of the season today, I went and bought a couple of 6 packs of Chandler strawberries for my strawberry pots. They already have flowers and several plants even had green strawberries! This is going to be a gardening weekend for me!
