The Big Thaw

Signs of spring. Rain, rain, and rain, bringing on mud season – hope you’re ready!  (And goodbye, clean kitchen floor.)


Six eggs from six chickens, two days in a row.  I had to make cheesecake (Keller’s, from Ad Hoc.  It was divine, of course.)


A dog who comes in from a night on wandering, reeking of skunk. This is, apparantly, becoming a yearly ritual. (This was very helpful. And doesn’t he look hilariously embarrassed?)


Greens in the hoophouse, planted inside, and transplanted out.  Hooray!


Some color for the kitchen floor, using what I’ve got (lots of scraps) to bring in some sunshine.  (It’s the patchwork mat from Patchwork Style)
Blessings on your weekend, everyone!

    Oh Boy! Skunk! I’ve heard a tomato juice bath works – don’t remember where, probably from Pops

    now is when we really feel the difference in our weather from Massachusetts (where I am from) – we are still 3 – 4 feet deep in snow and I awoke to the snow lightly falling…. spring is coming though.
    Your greens look so wonderful. I have been craving them so.
    I love your idea about the rug too – did you put something on the bottom to prevent slipping?
    Warm wishes,

    Gorgeous floor mat and look at those greens thriving already!
    And life goes on…
