I took a little peek under the straw this week, the strawberries have new leaves and the garlic is up! Exciting things let me tell you. The herb bed is in good shape and everything that should be back is. The nettles are doing very well, and our raspberry canes have buds. I wasn't sure they would survive this winter, but they did. The chicken run and coop also got a little clean up this week, and our little hens were quite happy about that.
It rained all day yesterday, and rain is in the forecast all week and weekend, which means that large pile of dirt we had delivered will most likely stay right where it is. Once the sun shines again all the beds will get a little top up with that lovely mix of compost and the new raised bed will be filled. And then the planting will begin!
