Spring, oh Glorious Spring, where art thou?
So, I've been trying hard to embrace my spring inclinations. I've got the garden planned out, there will be much work ahead for Music Man and I as we build and prepare a lot of raised beds, I have a plan for the vast scope of landscape work that will need to be done. The landscaping is well overgrown here and needs much love and attention. I'm trying to line up a delivery of some firewood to get us through next winter while ours, which will be cut this summer, has time to season. I've got the seeds ordered and delivered, have the plan for the chicken order and are gearing up for the eventual arrival of spring. Now, we just need to to peek it's shy little head for us to start on this long list of work. We also have a very long list if items that will need to be done to the house and barn also, starting with improved insulation in the house itself.
What plans have you made to welcome spring in? Farmer's Almanac called for a long, cold and above average snowy winter here in New England. So far, they've been right on the money. For summer, they are wanting hotter and more humid then ordinary (not two of this woman's favorite things, either!) here in New England, so it's going to be an interesting year here on our little farm. I'm just waiting for that first day that I can open the windows, let in the sunshine and fresh air and hear the birds serenading me. It's coming...can you feel it?
Wishing you warm breezes and spring blooms, ~Peacemom
