I have to share this with you.
Significant green...finally here!
The trees and bushes are beginning to bud...
it won't be long now until everything is bursting into bloom.
This little girl
took her first long walk on the farm yesterday.
We walked past the pigs.
Ok, we ran past the pigs (a little scared).
We made it the whole way to the garden,
where she settled down into my jacket and waited for me while I planted
radishes, spinach, lettuce,
and sugar peas.
Look at the rhubarb!
It won't be long until the whole garden is full of edible goodness.
There are so many sights and smells for a little one to take in...
The farm world is a really big place with so much to learn about.
We will take it slowly and let Annie gain confidence.
Sam and Oakley came along on our walk...
and Oakley played fetch for a while (his absolute favorite thing!)
My new pumpkin patch is finally tilled...
and I have begun cutting pickets for the garden gate for that patch.
This gate will have pickets that are a combination of flower pots and bunnies.
A fence around this area will be necessary to keep rogue chicken gardeners from
turning my world upside down!
And to Joyce F. who asked how chicks play....
Sit and watch a batch of chicklets some time...
they run, play tag, leap frog, and hide and seek.
Really, they do!
And perhaps you might see them involved in all sorts of make believe!
Whatever it is they are doing, it is certainly joyful...
that is until I enter the house, and then they scramble...
scared out of their little minds!
