It feels like spring here, 76 today. All the animals are happy, we are happy, everyone is happy, happy, happy. Speaking of happy, these are happy chickens. Chickens that are out grazing on grass and bugs in the fresh air are happy chickens and make really yummy eggs.
Weather this nice has given us the itch to start planting. I hope we don't pay for that. So far we have put in swiss chard, broccoli, onion sets, and potatoes. The kids had fun helping us plant. It doesn't look like much in the picture, but we planted 20 swiss chard and 20 broccoli plants at the far end of the row and still have room to plants 40 lettuce plants in the middle of that same row. Our first row is half onions( red and white) and half potatoes.( red and yellow)
Closer to our house we have a smaller garden with a few raised raised beds. Right now we are doing our seed plants in that area. So far we have planted spinach, spring greens, carrots, and some head lettuce. Hoping for a nice spring rain and the beautiful weather to stay like it is.
