It was so sunny and warm out today that we opened the windows early and had vegetable omelets and coffee in the fresh air before getting to work outside.
Oona and I mulched a raised garden bed for her use and she planted peas. When it’s warmer she will plant sunflowers and mini pumpkins as well. She is beyond excited!
After we took care of that we finished mulching the back garden and Oona helped plant peas back there as well. We got tomato and pepper seeds started inside, and I tied the long, spindly rose branches down to the trellis after some pruning.
I checked on the bees and they were happily buzzing about and working hard to bring nectar and pollen back to the hive.
There were tiny little blue wildflowers blooming all over the lawn, and I found two little crocuses in the front.
It was great to have the kids all outside all day for once! Oona conned Paul into playing on the swingset for a little while before dinner.
Our house lamb is getting used to life outside once again, and is walking and eating on her own. Her head is unfortunately still turned a bit back, but very slowly that seems to be improving as well.
In the coming weeks we will be putting in the cooler weather crops: lettuces, beets, carrots, radishes, etc. I can’t wait for them to be ready. I’ve been craving crunchy salads like nobody’s business!!!!
The sheep have been running and playing and kicking up their feet, and the dogs have been rolling happily in the grass. Everyone’s got spring fever!
I think Lucy is the most photogenic dog!
Though Orzo doesn’t want to be counted out.
I know spring doesn’t officially start for a few more days, but we are enjoying life as though it is here already!
