Other signs of spring are evident at our local Mennonite hardware store, Weavers. This is the first year I have ever seen them selling chicks. And they have quite a large selection of seed potatoes and onions. I really can't wait to get digging in the soil again.
There is so much clean up outside yet to do. The cinders from the road crews need to be raked back into the road. Last year they came around and swept up the cinders on the road, but not the ones on the grass next to the road. I wanted to have the cinders in the road when they came around, but I just missed them today. I guess I will just have to shovel them up myself. There is major pruning needed on most of the arborvitae, especially along the stream. And there is still clean up from Sandy. We have been working on clearing things away from the areas of the new barn and access road.
