Spring is well and trully on its way. The days are getting longer even though it still gets dark by about 6.00. We have a very good way of telling as the chooks now go to bed at 10 past 6.00. Only a few short weeks ago it was just before 6.00. Also the egg laying has progressed form only one or two a day to six a day.
The days are still frosty and the arctic chill goes throught your bones but the fruit trees have started to bud and even some have the first few blossoms appearing.
Hopefully soon my order from diggers will arrive and then the flurry of seed planting will begin.
