This time of year we are usually reaping the harvestfrom our "Winter" Garden, that we planted back in the fall. After seeding the last October, the chickens got into the garden and dined on carrot, sunflower, and peas (seeds). There isn't a lot of produce. Last week, the hubby patched the holes in the garden fence and instruced the children tothe need to keep the chickens out , and they pseeded again for a Spring/Summer garden.
For now the Lemon Tree is weighed down with lots of lemons, and is also starting to blossom for next years fruit. Lemon trees are amazing to me how they can do that all the time. We are picking the fruit and sharing it with whoever will take and enjoy free fresh lemons.
The Almond trees are blossoming:
Petunias are doing wonderfully well this year:
and our hens are giving us 4 - 5 eggs a day, this is plenty for our family an also gives us a little to share. I know there is more than 5 eggs in this picture, the children forgot to check for eggs the night before.
and there is always knitting. I knit two hats for Sydneyknits' hat drive for the oncology unit where here husband was treated.
Having knit this once without beads, helps me feel more comfortable with the pattern and next time I will knit it with beads.
