Fences are up around the gardens and they look great!! Could use a little more rain, but everything is nice and green.

Kenny has been collecting cattails to make baskets - looking forward to the results.

The fence around the herb garden works - except for when the chickens get off the perch on the porch...one got in and couldn't figure out how to get out.

  garden vs chickens
So how do I keep the chickens out of my garden??? It is encouraging that they work up the garden, but they need to STOP when I plant it!!

They say it is poor man's fertilizer - let's hope so!!! Don't think it will be good for fruit crops however, still haven't planted the new berry bushes - too many plans and not enough time...

Plants are up, still a danger of frst though. Biggest problem this year will be keeping the chickens out of the garden...

  goats
Our goat has turned out to be an escape artist...she doesn't stay in the fence long enough for the boy to do his business, maybe we will never have goat milk :-(

Started some seeds in the little greenhouse my husband bought me. Haven't had much luck starting my own seeds in the past, hope this will help. Just started herbs today, need to get some more supplies before I go full throttle.

  snow chickens
A covering of snow this morning, even though it was a mild winter, it sure is hanging on...got some new chickens yesterday, very different looking - so much so they don't go in with the others, they have decided our front step is their home...might have to re-think that!

Come visit me, Rambled R Jacobs.

  and another one...
Had a lamb born late last night, running out of jub space so she had to spend the night outside with mommy - looks like she made it okay though, she is bouncing around this morning.

Bright sunnyday, but cold, think I might assemble the little green house today.
