December 31, 2011 - Happy New Year

I can't believe it's the last day of the year.  The weather has been so beautiful.  The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the temperature is in the 60's, and the lenten roses are starting to bloom.  Could it really still be winter?  I think we're in for a very mild winter this year, which suits me just fine.

We've been working for the last two days clearing more land and chopping up trees.  There were so very many of these horrid trees with thorns we had to take down to clear land for the garden.  They are such a pain to chop up - but we have to do it.  We have alot of weeds to get out also and everything is going in the outside woodstove so that thing was cooking yesterday!  It looked like a steam engine most of the time! 

Olivia was able to prepare two beds for spinach and get that all planted.  It probably won't be up until the spring but we'll have a headstart.  We put in wire hoops and covered them with the agribon fabric for protection.  See picture on left!

Happy New Year
