Yesterday our chickens had their first taste of freedom in months. The ground is dry enough in places and green shoots are starting to appear so Mary let the birds out for a little exploration.  

Their first course of action was to climb the hill and look for bugs and fresh greens at the top.

They weren't too camera shy either.

I think we may have boiled our last sap for this year. The weather is turning very warm this week, and the nights are staying above freezing. When this happens the sap stops flowing and we take out the spigots and clean our equipment.

Unless something worthy to report happens I'm taking a break until the 25th when I'll be back blogging.

Enjoy the sunshine and thanks for stopping by.

  1. I am sure you are both ready for a well deserved rest. I get tired just reading about all you are doing. I came on to find the link that Mary posted in Facebook about your architect. Just want to say a quick hello before checking it out back there. Rest up. Spring is really coming. She is just taking her sweet time.
