Yesterday was sunny, yet cool and breezy...perfect for getting some inside chores done, a great opportunity for washing and hanging bedding on the line. Aren't line-dried linens the best?!?! Except, silly me...I put my sheets on the line so that I could have that sunny, fresh-air experience when I went to bed (I was looking forward to it all day), and I forgot and left them hanging on the line too long. By the time I remembered, they were soaked with dew. I had to put them in the dryer in order to make my bed. They had lost that line-dried smell and feel...oh, well, at least they were snuggly warm; it dipped down into the 30's last night...brrrr!
I clipped crab apple blossoms and brought them in for our entryway; I wish you could smell them. Having fresh flowers in the house is so cheery and welcoming.
With the housework done, I plan to do some yard work today...
*Plant these beauties (a Mother's Day gift)
*Prune around flowering crab apple...blackberry bushes and alders are starting to choke it out.
*Mow the lawn (first time this year)
*Replant pea seeds since the chickens ate the first planting...grrr!
*Weed/Clean out one perennial garden
I'd love to see you come back next week for more from Front Forty Farm. I have lots planned. I want to share my new formula for laundry soap ...it's a little different than most I've seen. I have been tweaking it for months.
I also found some great little items at the thrift store that I'd like to show you.
Off to work outside.
