Hey winter, take a hike! I’ve got planting to do

It’s been a long couple of weeks, waiting for old man winter to pack his bags and hit the road. Up until the last few days, mornings have been frigid with highs at or just below the freezing mark. Having learned a long time ago to temper my itch to start planting, I didn’t have to worry about any damage from our recent late frosts. In fact, I took advantage of the mild afternoons to get a lot of prep work done, in anticipation of spring finally arriving for real:

And after finishing up some hoeing and weeding the other day, I found one of the neighbor’s chickens roaming our back yard, pecking at bugs, seemingly unbothered by my presence.
