And so it begins!

This weekend we started planning our Woodland and Veggie gardens :)  We set our first stone in place (we've named the stone Hilda, after the first saved sheep at Farm Sanctuary)...(and yes, we named a stone).

Also did a bunch of weed-wackin'...a job I really enjoy. Right now my gardening is really just about deducting wild growth...creating paths and killing killing killing the evil thistle and less evil milk weed.  My mantra whilst wacking is "Slow and Low, Slow and Low..."

Even though we've had a ton of rain, we really only have one small spot that is actually a pool of water. Lots o'mud, but I don't think it's too terrible and don't expect to see rain like this again very often.  [Unless Tool is right...then we'll all have to Learn to Swim.]

Planted (my fave) Heavenly Blue morning glory, giant 8' sunflower and Tithonia (Mexican Sunflower) seeds. This is my 3rd attempt at the sunflowers...I'm feeling like this is my year!

These lovely ladies grew WILD! in our field last summer.  Ahhhhhh....

Had the hubby straighten the leaning bird house and just as I was going to try to clean it out in order to attract some new visitors I heard a buzzzzzzzzzzzzzz from inside. Yikes!  We backed away slowly and headed back to the porch. No need to make anyone angry...I'll wait until the cold weather to clean it out...score 1 for the wasps!
