The onions, leeks, celery and celeriac are all growing away under the fluorescent lights. We are preparing our small unheated greenhouse for planting salad and kale late next week. I have learned soil-blocking.  We have planted cabbage, and a bunch of flowers (Hollyhock, Bells of Ireland, Foxglove, Echinacea and some Stevia). We are adding an addition onto the chicken coop for brooding babies and as a chicky hospital when needed (not at the same time of course). Next up to plant are tomatoes and peppers in soil blocks

The snow continues to melt and some birds have returned. Spring is in the air.
