Well, Spring is officially here!

Thank goodness the rain has ceased temporarily. Here in Avoyelles Parish, March is definitely living up to it's cliche' as the windiest month. We are now shaping up the beds by weeding and adding organic compost. This week we planted some tomatoes, sunflowers, heirloom corn, and 5 new blueberry bushes. We're also still in the process of planting our new fruit trees.
