It has been a long time since I last posted.  Spring is finally in progress at our homestead. The white magic is done covering the gardens allowing for clean up in the gardens. I've already got plans in mind for the gardens. I won't tell you just yet. Be sure to stop in again soon and follow my adventures in the garden.

Homestead Happenings 4

I have enjoyed having Hannah to help share my posts with you. But she will be going to her new home this June when the qualified entry will be drew. So I have decided I will need a doll for future posts. Emma has been in my sewing basket a very long time. So she has come out of the sewing basket and will be getting prim dresses to show off in those future posts. There is still time for you to have a chance to be the one to give Hannah her new home. Just click on her in my right side bar picture of Hannah to find out the details.
Hannah and I got our things together for sowing our seeds for the hanging garden since we last blogged.
Some are growing at a much more speed than others.
Scrap boards from the window framing were used to build this shelf to fit my sewing baskets. 
We visited a tractor show and flea market this past weekend. I found an amber bowl to match the one I broke. Now I have a complete set once again.  I had to take a picture of this  fine creature  in the barn yard before we left. 
It has been raining and a bit cold so there is not much to do in the garden's. The ducks enjoy the rain and puddles. However the chickens like their nice dry house these rainy days. For Topaz and I we like curling up under a warm coverlet watching  movies and napping while Sam is at school.

Homestead Happenings 3

The gazebo has been swept out of left over leaves from last fall. The chickens are roaming the gardens enjoying what sunny days we have been blessed to have lately.Our potatoe beds are ready for planting. I have decided to also plant bell peppers along side of our potatoes.As yet we have not been able to continue the rock sidewalk around the gardens. Still waiting for a response to a request for unwanted tin roofing. 
Topaz is enjoying the outdoors more these days. The old skid has been removed and the rocks have been put in place. As for our old porch it will have to continue to serve us for now. Many years ago we reclaimed this old wood porch from a near by neighbor who removed it from a building on their property. I have hopes to spruce it up a bit with some porch paint. That can be a project for Sam when school let's out for summer. My plans for the out house tool shed have been put on hold for now. 

Hannah has received two confirmed entries for her new home. Hannah and I would like to thank you at this time. If you are reading my blog for the first time in awhile you will have some catching up to do to find out about how you may qualify to have a chance to give her a new home this June. Just click her pitchure in my right side bar to read all about it and enter if you like. I am very much looking forward to get more under way at my summer therapy in the gardens.
