Don't laugh at my wheelbarrow. I've had it forever and it has patina! ~
I can't stand around all day marvelling at the first Periwinkle bloom. ~
I know I keep saying it, but this is March in Ontario and we should be covered in snow!
Instead, I'm in shorts and have chives almost ready to cut! ~
Ignore the temporary edging. It's just to mark them so they don't fall prey to my shovel.
I leave the kale in at the end of the season since I can harvest it up until Christmas. The mild winter has caused it to start growing again. I've never seen this! ~
See this none too attractive shed that my neighbour smacked right up to the fence? ~
I keep trying to think of ways to disguise it. To the left of the shed you can see where I started weaving a wattle fence. That took about a week and then I decided I couldn't live long enough to ever finish it and gave up. Today, I decided to fight shed with shed, or coop to be exact.
I bought this. ~
As soon as I figure out how to get this baby together, I have a darling, little chicken coop. Then, I'm off to my daughter's farm to bring home some feathered friends! I haven't had chickens since my daughters were little and I'm soooo excited!
Have a day where you do something crazy!
What?! A chicken coop! hahahaha! So funny! You failed to mention that your sister & I bought the same one because we're going to try to turn our small town into the egg capitol of Ontario! I can't wait to learn something new...we have to get those boys working on them! xo wendyReplyDelete
I didn't want to spoil your surprise! We can change the name of the village to Eggtown. lolDelete
you have our warmth and we have the rain. That's ok with us 'cuz we sure need it here in Texas. Looking forward to seeing your chickens.ReplyDelete
I'm happy about the warm weather but concerned about the water levels with so little snow. I don't want a dry well!Delete
That will fix that neighbor, lol...I would love backyard chickens one day. Our weather has been all over the place here in the west...rain, hail, snow, sun and back again. Warming up to a balmy 11c on the weekend...woohoo!ReplyDelete
You will have to bust out that bathing suit. lol The neighbour has 5 acres and puts everything on my fence line. Sigh.Delete
Isn't the weather crazy? The trees are all budding here in northern NH and if this warmth keeps up we will have leaves in March! We usually don't get any leaves until mid-May! Oh, and it's funny you mentioned chickens. Last night I was telling my family I would love to get chickens! They think I'm crazy.ReplyDelete
We're all a little confused about this weather! I'll keep everyone posted about how the chickens work out.Delete
If you're getting chickens I hope you post pictures. I hope winter doesn't come back to spite the warmth.ReplyDelete
I'm sure I will flood you with pics of my chickens. lol Reason tells me this weather can't last.Delete
Oh, I am jealous now. I wish I could have chickens!! I hate association rules :(ReplyDelete
I think I have lived in the country too long to follow those kind of rules.Delete
I'm getting really excited about my chickens. Can't wait until we go pick them up.ReplyDelete
Paul is ready to start building anytime now.
Got names for your yet?Delete
Nothing like picking veges form your own garden. I'll follow on linky on the way out.ReplyDelete
It's a crazy amount of work but amazing what that little plot will yield.Delete
Chickens,...that's awesome. Please do document how that goes. I would love to have chickens but I'm always afraid of who will tend them when we travel.ReplyDelete
Love your wheelbarrow! Could you hang a wreath on the back of that shed? It might end up feeling like a focal point if you leaned a few old tools up there and found a wreath that would weather well.ReplyDelete
Wow. Lot's of W's in that last sentence. ha!
A+ for the letter W! lol The shed is about a foot back from the fence so I don't know if I can do anything with it. It looks a lot more quaint in the pic than it really is.Delete
