Spring has definitely arrived here in NJ. Here are the signs...
A finished chicken coop. Our chicks arrive in exactly one week! The Easter arrival date was just because that is when McMurray Hatchery would have all the chicks we wanted available but it does make for a nice Easter gift. The brooder is ready and waiting. We can't wait for the babies to get here.
Haley on the trampoline. She's perfected her flip and can land on her feet. Here's her jumping split.
The raised beds are planted with lettuces, greens, peas, small carrots, herbs, and I don't know what else. I only took a photo of one bed. The chives have been up since the warm weather a couple weeks ago but in the next photo you can see the salad sprouting...
I have some of the strawberries cleaned out and still working on the rest...what a job!
Raspberries and blackberries have been trimmed back and are sprouting leaves and growing.
Disco dancing, dreadlock sporting scarecrow is standing guard in the garden!
The very first blooms on the apple trees.
