new arrivals

We had a big dump of wet snow last night and now the wind is furious it was warm and the snow soggy and soft this morning, but it the wind has a frozen bite to it now and everything is back to ice.

I put a lower line on the electric fence for the calves yesterday and let them out for a stroll this morning before the gale came up.

And the leeks are just up, pushing up into the world of my potting house just ahead of the onions, whose white elbows are just appearing. Welcome!

...and one week later before the haircuts

My onions and leeks are just waiting to go in the ground. I also get inordinately happy when I see those first little elbows peeking up!
