Spring is here even though it feels like we skipped right over winter. I think we may have had a couple dustings of snow and just a small bit of freezing weather in December. It was the end of January when the first flowers were popping their heads out of the ground! So many things are in bloom now that normally do not bloom until the end of April!
We've also started planting some vegetable plants and seeds. So far we have broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and lettuce growing! I also planted some bachelor button seeds. Growing up those were some of my favorite flowers.
We are also researching getting some chickens for our backyard. Right now we are trying to either buy or find plans on making a sturdy hen house that is attractive enough to be a nice addition to our yard. We LOVE fresh eggs!
