This post is much overdue...and I'm not going to make excuses. Because it has finally started to warm up and green up around here, and I have one large hoop house, 68 tomato plants, 26 week-old chicks, two wild girls, mountains of laundry, ten fingernails blackened with soil and compost, and a wicked spring head-cold.
So I'm going to just charge ahead, and play a little catch up.
The beginning of the egg hunt; ready, set...
Amelia's Easter dress was hand-made by me. She looks like a very small bridesmaid in it...a small bridesmaid who climbs through the tiny door in the chicken coop, and picks every dandelion in sight.
Next came the raising of the hoop:
Our pal, David, came to help, along with his trailer of tools. Hooray for David!
Serious business, this.
This trellis has beans and peas popping up all around it now!
I will post some more recent pictures soon....really...!
And Amelia's spring dance recital:
It does look like there's something interesting going on back there, can't really blame her...
And this dancing queen made it onto the front page of the paper...I have a feeling it won't be the last time.
