-Both kids go around squealing each day as a new daffodil blooms. They both recognize the daffodils and call them by name. Swoon.
-I've been clearing more and more land. It's amazing how much work I have done and how much work there is still out there to do. I have to remind myself that it's a lifetime project. Anyway, I'm hoping the grapes will produce more since I cleared out the brush shading them. Large, delicious concord grapes...please grow!
-Seedlings have still been going strong, a couple peppers finally popped up. I haven't planted anything in the garden yet, awaiting our neighbor to till it with his tractor. He's not on Jackie time. It's okay, it's still early.
-Not having the garden ready for planting has me working on other projects. As in expanding our already huge garden. Someone must examine my head. I can't stop these ideas from flowing. But some ideas are decorative and functional. Goodness, I am enjoying making my dreams a reality.
-Brush burning. Goodness, we've done lots. There were ginormous piles the other day, complete with prickly thorns that I got in my head we must burn. My husband wasn't feeling 100% and was getting off a night shift. He said he'd be back in an hour. I got started burning, with two kids in tow, thinking he'd be right back out. He fell asleep (totally justified, as he hadn't slept the night before), and the kids and I spent four laborious hours hauling and burning. I don't think I'll be doing that again.
-I think today might be a bread selling day. We haven't in a bit and some customers have been asking.
3) There's much beauty in the tiny emergence of spring in the garden. Perhaps you agree?
Raspberries (not wild, ones I planted).
And I love seeing the bugs again. Yes, I'm a bug lover.
