Low Tunnel Update

Well, you've been asking for an update, so here it is! The low tunnel AKA "COVID-19 victory" garden has been planted. I think that's what I will call my gardens from now on - my COVID-19 (coronavirus) victory gardens. Oh, the suspense (to see if the tunnel yields any produce)!

Spring Has Sprung & Lambs!

Well, Spring has finally arrived. I'm glad it's a wee bit early! The crocus are up and the first lambs have arrived!

Starting Veggies & Herbs Indoors – Update!

I deduced that I started with the lights too high up and lowered them within the first or second week. Unfortunately, some of the seedlings ended up a bit leggy. I think they will work out in the end. Anyways, these pics are from February 11.

Building a Low Tunnel

I'm trying out my new pipebender from Johnny's Selected Seeds today. It was fairly easy for me to bend the first hoop. The hoops are made out of 1/2" electrical conduit.

Shearing Time is Over

My husband sheared a couple of hoggets by himself, but he ended up doing adaptive shearing with me where he would tip and shear belly wool and get legs started, and then stand them up, and I would finish shearing the rest of the sheep from a sitting position while he held them. It was definitely a team sport.

I’m Confronting My Wolves

When I was younger, I fought really hard against an amputation. On April 23, I undergo AKA. I'm going to make a metamorphosis. It's spring! It's time for me to quit running from my metaphorical "wolves".

Ahem, Excuse Me, WHEN Will Spring Be Here?

They say this is one of the worst winters they've ever seen around here. Good, because if this is normal, I'm leaving ASAP! It seems like spring will never come.

Unplanted Bulbs

Don't despair; plant those remaining bulbs in pots and put them in the cold garage!

Springtime

Spring is fully here for all of us, and I hope it is for you, too.
