Winter Green

So it is 39 degrees outside (Fahrenheit),
and the garden is flat and brown.
What can one do to experience a little sprouting?
Cut the top off some carrots
(real carrots, not those whittled things),
and put them in a small dish with some water.
Tiny green trees will grow.
Many root vegetables will do the same....
something to sustain our spirits until Spring.

Water, Water, Everywhere

Here are the girls drinking water
out of the tiny plastic pond by the beehive.
While they have their very own water source,
they like to sample everything available.

A particularly good time was had drinking water
racing from the downsprout
during a rainstorm last week.

Two HUGE eggs today.
No eggs yesterday.
Two the day before that.
One egg the day before that.

As spring progresses, they should get more regular,
with one egg each every day.
