It was foggy again this morning. Farmers and animals alike are certainly enjoying the warmer weather, although I hope for the orhardists in our area, we don’t get a really hard frost anymore this spring.
I haven’t purchased a new camera yet, but Katie let me borrow her old one for a bit. Here is Grandma Cow checking out the “new” pink camera!Friska loves to ride in the car with us. If we say the word “ride” to her, she gets very excited and tries to figure out if we’re taking the car or truck. She rode with us again today to check on the pigs we have about 8 miles away. Going to the bank is also a highlight for her (plentiful dog biscuits there).
My garden seeds arrived yesterday! Cecilie and I put some onions in the dirt last week and it really got us both itching to do some more planting. I love these shelling peas from Territorial–they are very sweet and mature quickly. For my tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and basil, I shop at a local, Mennonite greenhouse where they sell heirloom vegetable and herb plants. If you love heirloom veggies, don’t mind crowds and can get away in May, I’ve heard very good things about the Landis Valley Museum Annual Herb and Garden Faire on Mother’s Day weekend. I’ve never been able to attend myself since May is super busy for us, but I’ve been told more than once what a great event it is.
Happy Spring! –Dee
