Spring in the Blue Ridge
This month finally has calmed down; I am working on a permanent place for three raised bed gardens. I plan to incorporate another wildflower garden too - Living on a hill does pose it challenges. My 5 young chickens are getting so big, and I think this weekend I will have them outside a bit each day, and on Sunday, I’ll let them coop it overnight it not too cold.
Hanna, one of three older hens, she is the leader. I can’t keep her out of my gardens! I have to do something quick, or I won’t be able to harvest a thing!
Today I walked outside at about 4:4 0 am, yeah, this is the time I leave for work. I thought how beautiful, peaceful, serene. Though are mountain poses it challenges in inclement weather – I love it!
