Amy and I started a bunch of seeds in cups this week to jumpstart the garden ~ I've saved all Gregs yogurt cups over the winter and had quite a collection. We started heirloom tomatoes (2 kinds), zucchini, yellow squash, cauliflower, cucumbers, and bell peppers. My corn, watermelon, bush and pole beans we will start directly in the ground.
Current projects include building a fenced in area for the Chihuahua's ~ they can burrow under the older chain link fence surrounding the pasture and love to annoy the neighbors free range chickens. We are also ripping up the dirty carpet in the sewing/craft room and replacing it with vinyl tile ~ easy to clean!
Amy, James, and I tackled shaving the angora rabbits. What a chore. I was the rabbit holder while they shaved and clipped. I did put on a lightweight jacket and work gloves to protect me if they got feisty ~ and they did. Amy got a huge surprise when we flipped on of the rabbits over to trim their tummy.....seems like Ana and Elsa are actually Ana and Hans. We are very thankful to not have a bunch of baby angoras. Hans will be going to the vet.
