This year spring is coming early, very early compared to last year. So this past weekend we started to prepare the hill and garden.
Luke used the tiller to till up the ground and add a few more rows to our garden.
We went to the store and bought on organic seeds for this spring/summer including: carrots, spinach, broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, and rhubarb. We also bought herbs: oregano, basil, and cilantro to add to the garden this year.
I climbed up and down our hill collecting broken branches that fell of trees the winter wind and collected them into the burn pile. We also marked trees and branches that needed to be cut down and Luke cut them down with his chain saw.
More work still needs to be done but it is very exciting to have a Sunday Saturday in March to work outside.
On Sunday we got sushi at our favorite place in Rochester to celebrate Luke’s birthday he also spent some bday money in the game and comic store next door. When we got home we played our newly bought game: Dominion Seaside expansion.
On his actually birthday we celebrated with his favorite birthday meal, beef stroganoff and my homemade Irish cinnamon rolls.
