Trees are still blossoming, even though we've been getting a lot of rain the past few weeks.
If you look closely in the photo at the left, or click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see a bee visiting cherry blossoms at the orchard.
Lately we've been digging holes to plant new trees and finishing up pruning and raking brush. We've also been planting and watering vegetable seedlings growing in our small greenhouse. We hope to be able to plant seedlings in the gardens during the first few weeks of April. We started some ourselves, and we're also ordering some seedlings from Peas and Harmony.
The chickens have been enjoying roaming around in the orchard every day. We're not sure if they can still be free-ranging after we plant the gardens, though. Maybe we'll have to just find a way to block them from the garden beds while the plants are still small.
