No more guilt
Mick started a ton, no, seriously..... a TON of tomatoes and peppers, what you see here isn't even half of what we have. This morning I transplanted another 20 to individual pots and I think, if I calculated right, there is still double that to be transplanted. Can you say Salsa?
The rabbits are also being put to work after having the winter off, I have four new litters and two more arriving in a couple weeks. I am constantly amazed at how easy it is to raise healthy rabbits, they did excellent through the winter and are now happily enjoying the Spring dandelions, nettles and bramble shoots I collect daily for them.
Next week, if all goes as planned, we should have chicks arriving. This is a first for me, I am really excited, these day old chicks will be our future laying hens. The drawback is that Mick and I have to construct a chicken coop and run within the next 4 weeks. The first month they will spend in the house, I know, stop laughing, seriously, a dozen chicks in my house, this should liven things up.
Needless to say, next winter, I will just enjoy my time off, guilt will not even enter my mind....
