|Do you see that little foot to the left? Hmrn.|
Tomatoes, peppers, and herbs are sprouting in all the south facing windows. Last week I seeded a row of greens (cold-hearty lettuce, spinach, mustard greens, and bok choy) but nothing's emerged yet.
A lot more feathered friends have just been added to our brood! A big batch of Freedom Ranger meat birds, a few bronze breasted turkeys (which kind of scare me already - not exactly sure why), and the sweetest, most fun-loving, happy-go-lucky mixed batch of ducklings, whom I am totally smitten with. They even come when you call them. Profoundly adorable. We now have no less than 52 fowl in our midst, which I find quite funny since I've never been much of a "bird person." I suppose I am now though!
We're spending as much time as possible with our hands in the soil, finding worms, and splashing in puddles.
These days are so full of good things. Everywhere I look I see new life beginning; Animals growing and grazing, and something new being planted every day. My heart is overflowing with gratitude for all this beauty around me.
I know this seven-months-pregnant mama is going to have a hard time keeping up with the animals and especially the garden this year, but that's okay. Spring is the time for dreaming big.
