It’s always good to be home….
I’ve been MIA, A being key here – yesterday alone I put 540 miles on my car.
I had to assess my chickens first this morning.
All eleven are still there.
I opened their little hatch door last week but they will not go outside on their own. I tried to push them out today but they would only scatter. I called them a ‘bunch of chickens’ and left them alone.
I picked a handful of strawberries for a smoothie.
The honeybees that were in our orchard last month are now on the raspberries…working their magic.
May and June. Soft syllables, gentle names for the two best months in the garden year: cool, misty mornings gently burned away with a warming spring sun, followed by breezy afternoons and chilly nights. …it’s time for work to begin. - Peter Loewer
