"Before the seed 
there comes the thought 
of bloom."
E. B. White

Today I am placing this year's seed order. There has been much thought of bloom and growth for the past week in preparation.

new arrivals for the new year...

peeps in the winter greenhouse
The silky hen did her job and hatched ten of the twelve eggs she was sitting on. She's now showing them the ways of the world, escorting them around the greenhouse, looking for bugs and other tender morsels. Another hen has decided she would like to start her own family, and after giving her a few eggs she immediately settled down into that oddly determined, glassy-eyed, nearly hypnotic state they get when brooding. Good times.
