It's February 10th. If you're a garden nerd, like me, you're:
When the neighbor kids come over, they skip the doorbell and head right to the back yard. Sometimes, the kids want to work in the yard for payment of one chicken egg. Today, we watched a chicken lay and immediately went to pull the golden egg from the nesting box. It was so warm! What an amazing experience to share with a kid. Food. It comes from farms and animals... and sometimes chicken butts.
This weekend was awesome. I know this because my kids went to bed a half hour early and immediately fell asleep.
We ended up with a birdhouse made from wood scraps, a new floor in the chicken coop, a better system for watering the birds, a tidier back yard and sore muscles.
My raised bed installation is on the schedule for March 1st. As mentioned above, I'm intimidated by my own grandiose veggie garden plans. I have a back-up plan though. If I can manage, I'll take a "back yard farming" course, taught by a University of Washington professor.
Plans. I have lots of them.
