Happy Spring

I celebrated the calendar reaching the vernal equinox today by spending a little over an hour enjoying 80s and sunshine.  I didn’t travel any further than the yard.  I do love my hoop house!

It is still very messy and weedy in there because winter came so quickly I didn’t get my tidying done last fall.  But it was a joy to dig in the partially thawed soil and bask in the warmth.  I just might get seeds sunk in the soil yet this week!

We’re still surrounded by snow, snow and more snow, though this warm spring sunshine is having a strong effect.  If I didn’t wear snow shoes, I would sink in to above my knees.

Here’s a picture of my winter and current method of bringing feed and water to my sheep.
