Who turned on the heat? It feels like summer out! Temps have topped 85 degrees. Guess winter is behind us as we sprung forward last weekend.
It’s certainly been a busy week of activity here on the urban homestead, so I am afraid I am behind in keeping ya’ll up to date.
So once again here’s a pictorial dispatch (or two) to get you caught up with happenings here on the urban homestead.
And for all those new readers, a warm welcome to our little homestead in the city. We hope you stay awhile.
