Took this picture last week and I would say that this lilac bush thinks spring is on the way. I hope so! It was warm a few days ago but yesterday and today it's in the 30's and windy...brrrrr! Still feels like winter to me. Last week Mike ripped up the garden and made it larger; then we shoveled manure from the backhoe bucket onto it.
A dressing of manure is great for the garden, we will be putting some pelleted lime on at some point also. Last night Mike came home and headed back out to get the tiller on the tractor to work the manure into the soil.
I snapped this picture from the upstairs window; could get a better view from up there.
Ahhh, garden all tilled and beautiful! In the coming week I will have to get the cabbages, broccoli, peas and potatoes to plant. Well, if the weather is cooperative.
This robin showed up to see if there were any worms for him to eat. Hope he found some!
What's this in the yard below the fence where the boys are??? Check the dark spot above the lettering in the picture.
Looks like the boys wanted to add one more piece of fertilizer, their input, to the garden. It didn't quite roll down the hill far enough though. Whose idea was that??? Pokey?
