Spring is here! Ok, not really. It’s still way too cold for this southern girl to handle, but that hasn’t stopped our family from enjoying a little spring time joy. (I know my daffodils look a little pitiful, but they are a sign of spring none the less.)
I mean really, what says spring more than 8 chicks running around! Meet our 7 Hens and 1 Rooster. They are actually much bigger than this now, but it is too cold to take them out for a photo shoot. This has already been such an amazing experience, chickens have such neat personalities. Yes, they have personalities.
We can’t wait to start our garden this year. The ground isn’t nearly warm enough to start planting outside, but I thought it would be fun to go ahead and start a few little seedlings. The little mister loved that we got to play with some dirt in the house. This is the first time I have ever started plants in egg shells, so we will see how it goes. You can read more about it here. I know the picture looks a little messy, but did I mention I did this with a 2 year old. I am amazed that the shells are still some what in tack.
A few states south of me strawberry season was in, and every grocery store around was having great sales. We bought A LOT, and put them in the freezer. Well, that was great until meat went on sale, and I had no place to freeze any because of the strawberries. So, out they came, and I made strawberry jam for the first time. I found this recipe in an old cookbook. You cook the jam in the oven all day, and it made my house smell amazing! Thank goodness my first attempt was a success, and it tasted great too.
Are you excited to see spring come?
