This weekend is the last few days of the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. Who’s going, who went, how was it? I didn’t make it this year. Just too many things around the homestead that needed me.
There are two events coming up that I’m particularly excited about. The first is another class by Dan Vorhis at Sky Nursery on Fruits and Berries for the Northwest Backyard on Saturday at 11 am. The other is the first official meeting of the Seattle Urban Homesteaders MeetUp Group. That’s being held Sunday from 5-8 pm. If you are interested in meeting some urban gardeners, chicken-keepers and bee-masters, consider joining us. Additional details on the Calendar.
We’re thinking about taking the chicken plunge. Who’s got chicks or will be picking them up soon? Any tips, tricks, resources or advice for a family considering adopting some “girls”?
Have a great weekend! I’ll be spending mine behind a shovel and a wheelbarrow, filling up that perennial bed we just finished. Will you be braving the cold to get a jump on spring?
