Not much to say really except that the weather has been miserable for so long now that it has me in a rotten mood. Sunday morning I woke up to snow covered ground. Temperatures have been hovering around +4 C. Looking at the long range forecast, this could go on until the middle of May. Mud and water all over. Do I sound pissed off, I AM!
Went out early this morning to feed chickens and coming back to the house I slipped on the mud and did an interesting little dance down to the house. My only laugh for the day I expect. Speaking of chickens....they have the gardens torn to pieces. Not only do I keep finding younger plants kicked out of the beds and soil kick out all over the lawn but the established older plants now have all their roots showing. I keep filling in the holes with wheelbarrow full of compost but it's to no avail. Not only do they kick all that out but they eat all the worms that are in it. I never had a bunch of scallywags like this before.
Parents are coming tomorrow for a few days. The green houses have opened for the season so I'm looking forward to my mom and I going there to see what plants are available. If the weather would get decent I could get my dad to help me re-cover the smaller greenhouse as the winter winds blew the plastic to pieces.
Lots of woodpeckers here yesterday and the fox sparrow keeps coming around. Got a few pictures.
