Back in the grass!

First day back on grassSpring is well upon us, and after a long Winter the flock is back out on pasture.  This is their second week out there, and they’re still pretty excited about it!

It’s an exciting time of year for us too!  We’ve planted a few persimmon trees, a handful of apple trees, a whole mess of Siberian pea shrub (a nitrogen fixer for building soil quality) and are expecting a bunch of hybrid hazels later in May.  This is on top of getting the vegetable garden going, renovating the blueberry plantings and trying to stay on top of the usual goings-ons of family life with small children.  Hectic?  Yes.  And, we wouldn’t have it any other way!
