Dreaming of spring!

Spring is around the corner, I can feel it, I just can't find the right corner! Last fall the girls and I planted a bunch of bulbs someone gave us around the tree in the front yard. Today I saw that a bunch were up and I worry if we get more snow. I might cover them with more straw when that happens.

 My son Aaron and I spent last Sat. building garden beds out of scrap wood. They came out pretty good! I need to collect more wood to make the rest. Today Is Aaron's 19th birthday, Happy Birthday, we love you!
In the Mary Jane magazine I found an article about a barn made from pallets and a polyuathane carport cover. I really liked it and now plan to make one for the goats which I hope to have by the end of the summer. I went onto you tube and found all kinds of neat things that are built with pallets. Now a chicken house and a bigger storage shed are on the horizon. This is usually free wood folks, just today on craigs list someone was giving away 25-30 pallets free for the taking. I really need a truck! I am becoming a great scavanger!

Those are very nice garden beds. As for the bulbs they should be fine, as they only generally come up when they are suppose too.
