This Weekend in Pictures

Saturday was supposed to be warm and sunny. So much for the weather man! It was damp and gloomy, much like the previous two days. A bit warmer, but still not the day it was supposed to be. We were planning on working on repairing the chicken pen, but it seems tomorrow will be a better day, so we decided to hold off. I hope it is, for more than one reason.

If you read earlier posts, you know I planted some Spring greens a week ago. And, of course, the weather got chilly immediately. Now, those plants can take cooler temps, but like all seeds, do like some warmth for sprouting. I see some arugula starting, and a few lettuces. I hope the weather improves, since I added more this week. I also got the nicer cover for the beds, so that should help more than the thin plastic that was up there. Here is the bed as it is now:

The rest of the garden is still a bit of a mess. I'm working on it slowly. Oh, and here's a shot of most of the chickens. They all rushed to the fence when I came out, to see if I brought any treats. I didn't. My bad!

We are having our homemade corned beef dinner tomorrow, when Kryss, Kleber and Will can come. But I made cranberry and golden raisin scones on Sunday, so there was some Irish in our St. Paddy's day!

Not too bad, eh?
That was my weekend. What was yours like?
