Signs Of Spring

We were busy over the weekend planting our newly arrived fruit trees; two cherries, two peach, two pear, two walnut and one lone apricot. We bought peat, soil and manure from a local garden center and actually had to bring it inside for it to thaw. See me in six years and I'll let you know how it all turned out.

M'Lady is in the process of planting our last seedlings which will be put into the garden next month. Tomatoes, eggplant and many different kinds of peppers are already beginning to sprout.

The young squire and I built seven A frames which we will use in the garden for climbing plants such as cucumbers, melons, peas and beans.

And due to a recent warm spell (it almost got to 60 degrees yesterday) the spring peepers have made their annual appearance. We slept with the windows open last night so we could be serenaded by them.

Soon we'll begin to till the garden and the grass will start to grow. Then the work will really begin in earnest.
