…where we keep them under lights in our basement.  We move them outside for a few hours a day to get them used to the outside weather.  If all goes as planned, we’ll be planting them outside in early May.  Then, before you know it….’mater sandwiches here I come.  : )

* Pear blossoms

The trees were full of blossoms last week and a few days ago they blew off like little white butterflies.  Now we see signs of pears starting to form.

* Herding Chickens

  1. Spring is working very hard to get here! Even in Florida, they’re calling for 40 degrees tonight. Hang in there, the sun will win this one yet.
