The weather seems to be warming up and a symphony of bird songs can be heard issuing from the treetops, which makes me excited for spring; and spring planting! This coming Friday I am planning to put the plastic over the greenhouse and soon thereafter the shutters and heater will be installed. Just in time for the beginning of seeding everything is falling into place.
In other exciting news, I have ordered 50 Barred Plymouth Rock chicks from Mt. Healthy Hatcheries. They will be arriving at the end of the month and, now that I think of it, just in time for Easter! Through the wonderfully helpful advice of Paul Clever & crew of Good Earth Farm in Athens, I feel more confident about raising the little creatures. I will be putting up pictures for folks to look at when they arrive.
