The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Friday afternoon on the farm

Shots of the garden

Friday afternoon on the farm --- swelling peach buds (go back to sleep!), the first near-blooming daffodil, dirty feet, and playing with permaculture.  No photos of the spring peepers who joined the floodplain chorus or the peas and greens I put in the ground.  We also put hen #6 in our bellies, a smooth operation which took only about an hour (not counting the eating.)  Such a perfect day to be outdoors!

Wow. You are experiencing spring! I think I'll go outside and stare at the dirt where I may plant something else today. Again, your property looks so delicious and wonderful. Enjoy the changing winds, and I wish your peach buds a good long nap.

That's exactly how I felt when folks a zone south started posting about flowers a few weeks ago. :-) Your day will come....
