Speaking of chickens, we're back to collecting eggs everyday! Seems like last winter it was March before our layers started producing again. I don't think the days in 2013 are any longer than the days in 2012, so if anyone has ideas about this, we'd love to hear them.
As spring gets into full swing, we'll be ramping up our fruit row. We've had a substantial strawberry patch for a couple of years now, which continues to spread, and we're hoping to provide the right nutrients to push our blueberry crop this year. In the dead of winter, we pruned back most of our blackberry and raspberry canes, so now we're just waiting for the new canes to pop out.
Here's hoping for a warm sunny spring!
