The weather has been so nice lately.
Nice enough to spend the morning outside wandering around the homestead.
Nice enough for the boys spend time digging for worms, playing tag and practicing hockey.
Nice enough for me risk it and start sowing seeds in the garden.
The last frost dates for Central Illinois is somewhere between the 14th and 21st of April so I probably should have waited.
But the soil is ready!
The worms are squirming!
The birds are chirping!
Since everything else on the homestead is confused by this weather, I’m throwing my hat in the ring and taking a chance.
I planted cabbage, lettuce and carrots. These are cool weather tolerant, so even if it does freeze again, I’ll be able to take measures to protect them from most of the cold.
Warm, sunny, breezy
Birds chirping and worms squirming
Did I hear a frog?
I’ve heard that frog, too! And you’re not alone – we put peas in the ground today 🙂 Fingers are crossed across the nation that the weather stays warmish!! Good luck!
Thank you! Good luck to you too!
