As the weather warmed and the soil dried out, we broke ground, built beds, seeded and successfully germinated sugarsnap peas and spinach, transplanted brussel sprouts, cauliflower, kale, broccoli, onions, and kohlrabi. We're still waiting on the beets, carrots, and turnips to poke through the soil. For the better part of February, we kept sprinklers running.

Oh yes, and Thomas turned 30 on February 20th, much to his dismay. We had a nice fire and potluck in the 60 degree weather featuring the food of our dear farmer friends and family to celebrate.
Right now, the hens are laying. We are gathering a few more eggs each day. Jersey and Weezy, our alpine goats, are with "kid:", job well done, Manchester! And Veronica and Hoagie are wallowing and rooting and growing ....their "one bad day" is fast approaching.
