  4. Saturday is my first digging day at the field. My back hurts already at the thought of it!

    Good work; you've got it looking ready for planting!

  5. It's looking good, already. I can only imagine what wonderful things will come out of your hard work.

    Thank you for the choir clip. I just love an all male choir. Is this a large one?

    Enjoy the weekend.

  9. Aren't the chickens loving this little bit of sun - and how they love the opportunity to gather a few worms. Good luck with the digging - don't overdo it or the back will suffer.

  10. It's a lovely way to spend the day. When I let our rescue hens have a go at the worms they act as though I am trying to poison them - and yet they free range in the wood and eat all manner of other things.

  11. Oh I wish I was playing out in the dirt ! Still a foot of snow on my garden with more to come tonight or tomorrow. I best make haste on finishing all my decluttering inside jobs I suppose before gardening time rolls around here again on the Bruce Peninsula. What's going in your Garden, John?

  15. An afternoon of digging for me too!

  16. I did some digging as well, although it was clearing paths, as we had a foot (~30.5 cm) of snow.

  17. As the saying goes: The early bird catches the worm. But it's the early worm that get's caught! Good day to be a chicken, bad day to be a worm.

  18. Digging done back in November, thank goodness, so it'll just need knocking about a bit I hope. Put a row of shallots in the other day and couldn't believe how soft and friable the soil was. Your chooks would have loved it!

  19. Our soil is saturated with water just now, but really looking forward to getting the garden in. We bought some onion starts, seed potatoes and peas last weekend and I'm anxious to get them in the ground.

    Fun to have the chickens in the garden "helping".

  21. I've given up on digging garden plots and now have my shade house in operation - put in my first batch of potted Bok Choy in last month - and have my potted herbs (culinary herbs, JohnG) started and already cropping for daily use. Next season I'll have potted tomatoes in there. Things like pumpkins still sprawl across the yard. I'm considering a small, relocatable chicken coop and two or three Isa Brown laying hens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISA_Brown) - be interesting to see how Denny adapts to those. Have had my strawberries in tiered pots for several seasons now.

  22. No excuses with weather like this. :-)
    Just finished planting another orchard myself and my bloody back is killing! How's yours?

    Have a great weekend!
