This past Sunday, I heard a "yank yank" bird.
|on deck to survive deer|
Well, actually a red breasted nuthatch. But this tiny little tiny bird makes a HUGE "YANK. YANK. YANK." noise, thus the nick-name. When I hear them - it it spring.
AND... the frogs are back to croaking at night.
that means Spring is here!!!
How about an update.
Started a little on the Japanese garden with shaping and pruning the Dogwood and Cherry.
|look what was hiding under the leaves|
Re-designed the garden. AGAIN.
I went with 3 4foot rows and a 1x8 bean row.
Moved the hoop plastic from the chard and broccoli starts because they can take a light occasional frost.
Transferred the hoops to what will be the tomato row 'cause they can't.
|Survived the winter!|
Worked a little on expanding the chicken run - keeping our fingers crossed for some broody hen this year so she can set on some fertile (hopefully) eggs from 2 neighbors.
Deer fence Still holding up.
