As we wait out the last bit of lingering winter weather, the first day of spring ๐ŸŒผ has come and gone. We've gotten what I pray to the gods is a last snow ๐ŸŒจ. As it happens, last frost is slated for 4/20. A fine date for a first day to get some outdoor planting done. After bicycle day and the day before my born day! There's been talk of an event here that weekend. Gotta reach out to Caldwell's Social Club to get an update.

As you may have seen in our previous posts, the indoor beds are built and now filled with that fresh organic soil, locally sourced of course, just down the street.

Many of our collective food scraps are destined to be food for worms and microbes from here on in. Mostly fruits ๐Ÿ‰ and veggies ๐Ÿฅ—.

@scrogboss brought us some of his close to three year build to seed and enrich our foundation.

A little sifting to make it fluffy and airy.

The kids found chicken claws in the soil. I see necklaces in the near future.
