Good morning from Snyder Hill.

  

A dusting of snow fell in the night

Nook & Cranny day + cats.

this past Sunday was a Nook & Cranny day

  

All the winter’s snow has melted into the earth 

And a slight blush of buds can be seen on the hillside treetops

  

No more ice at the pond

Peepers were chirping throughout the day 

  

Seeding day for me

  

Hooray!!

The seed rack has been labeled!

  

Happy dance while Bob picks the various varieties du jour.

There was a full days worth of things to do

  

Here’s Bob in the Cathedral watering carrots

   

 

I went to my usual domain in the greenhouse & got to filling trays after saying hello to the babies

  

This is what 25 trays looks like

Then I got to seeding them

  

Here is the hoop house next to the greenhouse

Where young plants transition from a heated place to an unheated place, and then to the Big Outside to “harden off” before being transplanted into earthville.

  

Brassicas, such as cabbage, broccoli, & kale are under remay to protect them from a killing munch-down by flea beetles.

  

Spinach, chard, beets, & lettuces are on the other side

  

Other was my nearby shadow for most of the time I was seeding 

  

He & Sebastian have been busy

I found a few 1/2 mice near the barn

Good kitties

  

Slowly the land begins to transform

  

Lettuce initiates the outside beds

  

Followed by spinach, which I got to transplant with gratitude.

Nice to be a part of this step in the process. Very satisfying.

(I forgot to take photos of the transplanted beds…)

Kale was also transplanted, and fava beans, & cilantro were direct seeded.

There was more to do but I had to get home to tend to the kitties there

  

Bakira pie

  

 

& the lovely Rosie
