There is so much going on here at 47 Daisies that there is no way that we could write a blog for each thing...so here are just a few things happening that we've noticed today!!!
-The grass is turning green
-The daffodils are blooming
-The pluots are leafing out (if you missed our blog about the apples and pluots, a pluot is a combination between a plumb and an apricot..pretty exciting!)
-The spring peepers are peeping like crazy
-The blackberries are leafing out
-Betty (our nubian doe) is in heat....
-Buckaneer (our nubian buck) is freaking out because of it...
-The arugula is up
-The Old Time Peas are all up (Thank you, Anita!!)
-The turnips are up
-The red ace beets are up
-The transplants are thriving
-Another bed in the garden is tilled for planting
-The grape buds are swelling
-The robins are gallivanting
-We've had to start using the phrase "Watch for friendlies" to the kids again (which means snakes, spiders, etc...)
-The soil is drying (oh no...it's only February!!)
-We've started discussing canning recipes and plans
-The seed room is full (but soon to be empty...due to transplanting)
-The cover crop just keeps coming back
-The weeds are sprouting
-The privet is turning green and getting ready for the annual fight (argh!)
-And the CSA meeting is Saturday (Yay 2011 growing season!!!)
And this is just a few things we could think of from TODAY!! It's spring..for sure.
See you soon.
