IN THE KITCHEN
I decided to make sourdough waffles. I made my own recipe as I went along. Used raw sugar, whole wheat and all-purpose flours, sourdough starter, kefir milk and 3 beautiful eggs from the girls. Raspberry syrup from our berries was the topping.
ON THE FARM
My tractor, Mrs. Jones, had a nice tractor shed, we put in the first year we came here. The winter of 2010-2011 a tree came down and took out the shed. She has been covered with a tarp until this week.

IN THE GARDEN
Because of the snow on Monday the garden was white. I fall plant the onions and garlic in October. They are fed in January and again in March. Tuesday morning I decided to feed the onions and garlic the March feeding. I went down the row with my hoe and made a small furrow put in the plant food and covered. Now the melting snow is taking the plant food down to the roots.
The raspberries are beginning to show new growth. Planted a row of English peas and one of beets. The first green onions were pulled on Thursday, these were not fed as I knew I would be pulling them and I did not fed the garlic I will be harvesting to use as green garlic.
I have been busy dusting off the welcome mat, please know you may stop by any time. I am so glad you are setting on the front porch and listening to my stories. New friends joined us in the last few weeks. Come again and bring your friends. There is always room for more. Come over to Face Book to see how progress is going during the week.
Spring time is coming. Flowers are blooming, the first chicken swap was on Saturday, baby chicks are in the farm stores. This week we will be planting the onion sets and getting the potatoes cut to plant. Some of the bedding plants are ready to go into the garden. This time of year is so exciting. The garden is awakening from a long sleep. I hope I am up to the challenge.
I will be adjusting my schedule this week as we begin
Daylight Saving Time.
