The garlic is dug and drying. I planted a lot less this year, as even with giving it away a lot dried up before we could use it last season. We fertilized mid-winter with the cleanings from the bunny coops...
I highly recommend same. I always had great gardens back in the day when I had 75 rabbits in a rabbitry, and it still works as good as ever.
Pulled all the first crop lettuce for the hens and will plant more today or tomorrow.
Beans are blooming madly, despite woodchuck depredations. I need to get into that garden in the next day or so....after I finally get unpacked from camp that is.
Birds have gone nearly silent, although the Carolina Wrens are whistling up a storm. . Warblers migrate pretty darned early. Saw one Yellow Warbler yesterday and there are lots of Common Yellowthroats around yet.
Chickadees brought the kids in yesterday morning, going over the Winesap tree with fine-toothed combs...er....beaks... What a commotion they made! I hadn't been feeding, but filled my Jonna feeder with enough seeds to entertain them. They obliged by visiting within minutes. They must watch in the ingress and egress of folks here, as the feeders can be empty for weeks...as they have been...and within mere moments after seed is applied, they are back.
Last night the house was full of mosquitoes! It was terrible! We discovered that the front screen had all but disintegrated around the edges, so the boss and I repaired it this morning. Didn't make the mama robin who has a brood on one porch pillar terribly happy, but she's over it now.
Hell Wagon is finally fixed after much expense and many days. Darned thing. Three loads of hay yesterday, so I guess it's working.
