Spring is here! ...almost

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.
