Busy, Busy days....and Happy Spring!

Have been busy here getting things done that need doing.
Painted the pantry door the other day, and was on my hands and knees painting the bottom half portion of the pantry interior.
Then I have been moving furniture out of the house and
storing it in the garage/covering some pieces with blankets. Packing even more boxes and storing them in the garage.
And in amongst this I still run errands that need attended to.
Have also been listing new items in the garden shop over at

Love hearing from folks that are planning their gardens, some are new gardeners, some are veteran gardeners, but the fact remains..all of them are excited that Spring is now officially here... as of today in fact!

It is so nice to get little notes like this one from a customer in Idaho:

"Thank you for posting seeds on etsy. We've recently formed a 12 family Victory Garden with a teacher farm. The folks there are leading/teaching their trade of farming on a 1/4 acre plot this season.I am ordering these seeds for my own raised bed gardens though, and will share your site with all."

It is letters like this that really make having the garden shop so very much fun for me! I really enjoy that aspect of it.
I did manage to get some green bean seeds planted in our 4 ft by 8 ft raised littlest children assisted me..and already our green bean crop is about 5 inch tall plants. Grant it the chickens did decide to feast upon some of the wee seedlings and to scratch some of the beans to the surface..the rascals!
But we do have at least half of what we planted coming up just fine, and undisturbed by the I think we'll see a decent crop from it.

We also have quite a number of strawberries showing up on the berry plants..but again..trying to keep the chickens from discovering them.
This time of year the amaryllis are starting to pop up in the pots they have been planted in and some have already begun blooming. So very pretty.
The days here have been delightfully sunny and breezy...yes, Spring is here!
Wishing you all an absolutely lovely weekend!
