Like an octopus spinning plates, we have many things going on! It seems like every two weeks we jump from one major project to the next. It is hard to believe that by the time March is over we will have successfully completed three major projects!
In the midst of all of the hub-bub, we got our first tulip!
Other plants are coming up too! I am impressed with how much the front beds have grown and how large the Voodoo Lily has gotten!
Our latest to-do is the installation of a twenty foot fence section which will separate our front yard from the back. This is for privacy of course, and added curb appeal. Also, it will be nice to have an enclosed backyard for the chickens to roam in the winter. We've finished framing the fence yesterday, and begun to hang the cedar boards. We anticipate this to be done soon!
Additionally, we are converting our mud room into a walk-in pantry. I re-purposed one of our bookshelves into a storage area for our canned goods and clean jars. I am amazed by how much food we have left from last year!
We are also planning on re-painting the mudroom these two colours from the Martha Stewart paint line. The brown is intended for the trim and is called 'Tilled Soil'. The grey is for our walls and ceiling and aptly titled 'Flagstone'. Martha has the best colours!
We are planting potatoes for the first time this year. Notice all of the chit (growth) from a few of them! Those Fingerlings do not slack off! We've been so busy that we haven't had a chance to place them in the garden. It will happen this week, I promise!
