Well, once again I have been trying to create a coherent post on a particular subject but just can't seem to get the time or thoughts together. We are trying to get the garden at least started and I'm also trying to really build up my pottery stock and it just seems like there is not enough time in the day for everything. One day the weather looks like this and the next it will be sunny and warm. Stormy days we work inside and on pretty days I try to take advantage of that and do some outside stuff.
I have managed to get all the fruit bushes/plants, vines etc. fertilized but haven't got them all remulched at this point. Started some lettuce also and noticed that it has sprouted well. We really need to get the potatoes in and some cabbage and such. It has rained so much though that it's hard to work in the garden a lot of days.
So, I've also got this going on and this is just a small portion. Lots more dinnerware made. I think this past load came out really well and I'll show ya'll a photo of it all finished. I'm pretty sure I'm going to apply to a local show here next month. I should get accepted and if I do I've really got to get my butt in gear because it is a 3 day show and I'll need lots of inventory.
I've been in my studio a lot lately and I always keep the door open so I can keep an eye on the girls out in the yard and all. When the downpours come many of them run inside to keep dry. Jack fusses but I don't mind. They do poop a little but it's a concrete floor; easy to clean. Low flying hawks will also prompt them to run inside!
We took some time out today though to have an early Easter dinner with my family. I realized a while back that Jack and I didn't really have any decent photos of just us, sans baseball caps, mud, chickens etc. so I took the opportunity to get my brother to take a few photos of us. He used to be a professional photographer so he knows how to make even me look decent in a picture. There were a couple more that came out pretty good, for an impromptu session, and I'll have those printed up for my scrapbook.
