Where are you, Spring?

I've been spending any spare time I have planning my 2010 garden. Thanks to a recent article in Organic Gardening I'm willing to once again make an attempt at sticking to a 3-season garden plan. I always veer far, far away from my intentions. Rows of flowers always seem to find their way into my beds. It just happens!

Looks like I'm not the only one dreaming about April...

The hens are laying again. Finally!

I haven't felt much like writing about the girls lately. Since late this summer, really. They were producing eggs so quickly that I had not the time for writing blog posts. But that all changed after September.
No eggs.
We don't know if they were molting or being just plain stubborn. But that's all in the past, now. Let by-gones be by-gones.
And keep those eggs coming. I've got cooking to do!
