Monthly Archives: April 2015

I went to this plant swap 2 years ago and it was terrific.   I have no idea how many readers of this blog are within driving distance but if you are check it out.

Here is the info on this years swap.



I’m doing this post from my phone for practice on the trail.

Took Wrigley out for a bike ride “maiden voyage” with the doggie hauler I made from an old jogging stroller.

Huge snow pile is just about gone.

We have some pictures of spring. Garlic, rhubarb , daffodils and skunk cabbage.

April, 3rd, Lil prepared 6 bowls of goodies for the chickens to celebrate their 3rd hatchday.IMG_1111For Easter Sunday dinner, I dug up some sun chokes. I’m not sure if this is the last harvest from last year or the first harvest from this year.

Lastly, pictures of the east and west gardens and the uncovered chicken run. Note the snow. Also note the destroyed fencing of the east garden, there were a group of deer that took it down trying to get out late last fall.

Personal note, I’m going back to the Appalachian Trail for a month or so, starting April 30th.  I’m now a section hiker.
