Harvesting about a dozen eggs each day from our 16 chickens (2yo). Our overwintered kale does not taste very good so we are not harvesting anymore. We are just waiting for kale blossoms – our favorite!
A couple of hens have gone broody. We are letting them sit on some eggs but we are not getting our hopes up. Our roosters are only a year old so they are still perfecting their technique 😉
It has been interesting to see what a week of nice weather does to spring bulbs. I uncovered them more at the beginning of the week and the smaller ones have responded beautifully.
You can see in this next picture, the bulbs on the left came through the mulch while the ones on the right were blooming under the mulch (the white flowers on the right is supposed to be blue).And again, in the center of the picture below, a dwarf iris attempted to bloom under the mulch before I pulled it back. Even some crocuses (yellow in the center) were blooming under the mulch). The daffodils were fun to watch. More bloomed each day this week.
Monday:Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday, after a rain. Seeing what other people’s spring bulbs look like, I think I am going to move these bulbs in the fall. They are just not getting enough sun, being on the north side of the woods. What do you think? Should I move them this fall? Leave them another year? This is my first year growing bulbs so I am pretty much clueless.
Lastly, some more strawberries are popping through the mulch. It is fun to see things come back to life!What is going on in your garden? Check out what others are up to at Daphne’s Dandelions.
I am looking forward to posting the ‘Beginning of April’ post later this week, seeing how much things have changed in a month!
