Spring spring spring

Spring seems to finally really be here. 60's during the day, down in the 30's or so at night. The barn is loaded with babies, from chirping chortling chicks and turkey poults, to baby rabbits snug in their mother's nests, and the 3 lambs cavorting in their pen, we have much to enjoy and take delight in.

The gardens are slowly blooming and filling up as well. So far I have planted 3 varieties of carrots, detroit beets, 2 types of radish, 3 varieties of peas, and brussel sprouts. Today I am adding in 10 lbs of red pontiac potatoes, and if time and my human chick allow hopefully one of the lbs of onions will find its way into the ground. So far all that is up and solidly coming along is the sparkling white tip and ruby radish plants. BUT I think I see the first of the pea plants just beginning to poke its first leaf up into the sun. Mom has garlic plants that are looking great and growing nicely. The barrels have lettuce and spinach planted in them for delicious summer salads. 

And now for pictures! Enjoy!
