The Fort in February- in the past, it has been very cold, but this year, it would appear that spring is nearly here. The daytime highs have been above freezing for weeks and there is no end in sight. We've had hardly any snow to begin with and I anticipate it will be gone in mid-March, if this weather keeps up. Oh well. I love winter, but spring is the most exciting time of year for me!
Training the kids up for spring cleaning ;)
I've got the wire up along the back of the greenhouse, for the tomatoes and peppers and cucumbers to climb. And the plastic rolls up for easy access. I'm just waiting on my dirt.The chickens are getting excited for spring and green grass. At least, I think they are.
I took a walk this morning to the marina. There are some open holes in the ice that the otters have been going in and out of.

I've had a rough go of it, the last couple of weeks. Some unknown allergic reaction has sent me to visit our health care professionals too many times of late. I feel tired, but I am hoping I am done with it now and I am ready to have fun again! So, today, I decided it was time to start a few seeds. Red Globe Onions, Black Prince Tomatoes, Silvery-Fir Tomatoes, Buckflats Wonder Tomatoes, and some Garden Asparagus. The asparagus seeds had to soak for 2 hours before planting. I've never grown asparagus before, but have wanted to for years. I should have started the seeds years ago- then I would be ready to harvest them already! This will be an exercise in patience.
