This afternoon's lovely weather inspired me to snap a few shots of the weekends work. The greenhouse, which is still producing broccoli leaves for the bunnies and side-shoots and greens for us, is now all ready for soil amendments. After growing food almost constantly for two years the ground is looking BAD. Its an extremely ugly color and compacted something terrible.
We also used our outdoor living room during this respite from winter. Having that area has changed the way I draw house plans. We all enjoy the firepit and BBQ area so much, now it is just incorporated into our long term home hopes. Behind the seating area in the picture is the field where sometime in the future we plan to build.
Here is Big Bird and his harem. We are down to only five fluffy bottoms, but later in the week, we have nine new little peeps coming home. This is the second year that I put a light on the girls for the winter months, so we have had good farm eggs most of those years.
Some second hand store finds are almost too perfect.
