It has Been a Busy Week!

This week I have added a chicken hutch, a set of greenhouse shelves and yesterday Daddy brought my bunny hutch to town. The bunny hutch still needs a bit of finish work (paint, tar paper, shingles, hasps and locks for the doors) but it is finally home. So yay!

In the little greenhouse I have broccoli, rhubarb, snow peas, various lettuces and greens started. The unit isn't huge but I think it will be functional for starting the cold season seeds, hardening off the tender seedlings I will be starting the house and keeping a few things going in the fall.

I meant to run to the Monroe County co-op Saturday but didn't make it so that means I'll have to go in the a.m. before work tomorrow to pick up the organic chick starter mix.

I'm still figuring out the best way to house the chicks. It looks as though they will have to stay in my bathroom until they are feathered out enough to go in the chicken hutch and their run (which still needs to be built). With three cats in the house this will be interesting to say the least.

The Library closes soon so I had better get a wiggle on. Hope everyone has a great week and it is sunny wherever you live!

News Flash!

On the drive to work I saw my first crocus blooms of the season! Gorgeous gold blooms. They made my day. =) If the crocus are blooming surely Spring can not be too far away??

Hope you are all having a blessed and sunny Monday!
