Even with no chicks it was a beautiful day in the hill country today - sunny and mid-70s. In March! Spring and Fall are why I love it here. In my evening garden check today I noticed that I have Red Swiss Chard sprouting up little leaves with bright red stems, the garlic is just starting to poke through the soil and the rosemary has lovely blue flowers. The transplanted cabbages, Brussel sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower are all looking good and finally seem to be growing. I wondering if there might have been too many leaves in the compost which might be making the soil a little to acid (I have read that can happen) - so this weekend I may buy a soil kit to test it and see. Of course a lot depends on the chicks and the coop building plans for the weekend. Soil tests may need to wait :)
So not much new tonight - hopefully more exciting news and pictures tomorrow!
