An Early Spring?

Yes it is an early spring for us. It spit snow on us this past Saturday and only had one night of frost in a week. We have been getting some rain here and there this past week and we REALLY needed it. 

We have a raised bed box replaced around the asparagus bed. We still have the spring tilling to do to get the garden in.

The next thing was a nice thing, we brought down the old kitchen cabinet we found nailed to a wall in the barn. I have been putting old things I have found buried in the ground on the bottom shelf.

Then the Electric Co. came and took down the tree that was leaning over the power line and Dh got it cut up and we cleaned up the area and took the wood up to the barn area to dry for next year.

Dh took the tractor and even out the ground in both lean-tos so we could get the gravel in them.

 He also started clearing the area where the metal building is going to go.

 Then the gravel came.

In-between things we worked on the old wood cook stove, I was hand sanding but it was taking forever so dh took pity on me and used a wire wheel and the drill :) We had to drill out the dampers for the wood box and son dh Jr. helped with that as he and the two teens were here from Sunday night to a couple of hours ago.

I cooked supper yesterday of chicken cacciatore, noodles and biscuits on and in the cook stove. Works super.

 Dh and dh Jr. worked on the big dead tree out by our back fence line for about 3 hours.

Last but not least our apple tree bloomed this week. It doesn't look like the frost last week bothered it :).
