New olla bed, winter garden, Fairlight, baking day, spring!
from around the urban homestead. I had to put in a picture of ‘Lady Fairlight’ (our Nigerian Dwarf) because she was jealous of Blackberry getting all the attention lately. 😉
First Signs of Spring
Looks as if ol’Punx Phil was right. Daffodils are blooming, peaches and apple trees budding – spring looks as if it’s definitely early! Everyone on the urban homestead has caught spring fever – We gals are getting ready for baby chicks and ducks (interested injoining in the fun?), Jules & Justin are improving the soil with the organic compost (from our many compost bins and piles) adding and spreading natural fertilizer and amendments.
Everyone’s helping with the planting, pruning and re-landscaping (the newolla bed in the front yard is drawing lots of attention with folks commenting “what’s that?”) due to the freeze damage.
