Finally, Spring!

While it was like this outside:

we planted 3,000 of these:

so now that it's finally like this:

we can reclaim the dining room (aka temporary green house).

While the never ending snow kept falling, we also did a lot of planning. In the next three weeks, the goal is to complete the hoop house and start growing things inside it, bring in several dump truck loads of manure, and fence the back garden. If anyone has been dying to haul poop or dig holes have a fantastic outdoor experience, please feel free to join in.
