March 4th

Hoo-effin’-ray it’s March!!
It’s about time.
Now we just need the snow to start melting so we can get on with the spring work.
Still waiting on the last of my seed orders to come in.
In the meantime, everytime Hubby walks into a place that has seeds, if he has some spare change in his pocket he picks *something* up…
Yesterday he brought these home:

Carrots are always a good choice.
We go through tons of them fresh, the horses and the birds love the greens, and I pressure can as many as possible for winter eating.
Those radishes are a new-to-us variety.
Supposed to be better for hotter months.
Eh, we’ll see.
If they end up bolting and going to seed, well, then I’ll save seed for the next year and I’ll have seed pods to eat. Radish seed pods are spicy, crunchy, delicious little snacks. It is definitely worth letting some radishes go to seed!

Truth be told, I’m not sure how much Hubby going to bring home like this.
Typically his “pocket change” is what’s left after buying gas…welp, with gas sitting at $1.64/liter (that’s roughly $6.50 a gallon for you US folks), his pocket change is dwindling faster than beer on a Friday night.
And I have to make sure the man doesn’t run out of beer too!
Unlike our (not-so) fearless Canadian leader, I do have to worry about balancing a budget, since I know it won’t do it itself…šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚
Might just have to step up the homemade from whole grain beer making skills.
Or he could get on board with the wine drinking thing.
Or I could finish the dilutions on the…
šŸ˜‰

Anyways…
We’re sitting here in a holding pattern.
Waiting for snow to melt for the spring builds to begin, while moving snow away from places that may flood and so birds can have more spaces, and itching to get going.
Only 16 more days to the official first day of Spring.

    The work is about to begin and I waited all winter for you to have some rest. Not this year. Perhaps next.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Christine. ā™„

      To be fair, we’re kinda in rest time right now.
      Aside from a bit of shoveling here and there, we’re really waiting on Ma Nature to give us some warmth to melt and we can get going.
      I feel like a puppy just waiting for her master to toss the ball so I can chase it!
