It may be chilly out but that's something that doesn't surprise us in the mountains. While the perennials tough it out, the seed flats get tucked into the Dragon Dome Greenhouse to be safe from the absolute chilliest temps while they are still tender and young. Everything else gets to stay inside (as both germination area and greenhouse fill up to max capacity!) where its not just a little less chilly but is warm and toasty for those tender shoots that can't handle the still continuous frosts and deep freezes.
The hen just go 'yeah yeah what's new' after spending all winter huddling in the huts under heat lamps, so a little snow and freeze can't dampen their spirits too much. Especially not while the grass and greens are growing and the bugs are moving around!
The kittens don't mind some damp paws if it mean getting to run around outside. They still need occasional supervision to not get into too much trouble but the recall training is progressing as they still want a warm place to nap and all that play makes them hungry and the food is only available inside!
I'll have the usual microgreens available tomorrow at the Saturday drop off (and also at the Farm to Market Store on late Saturday/early Monday), plus the eggs (even if the hens have slowed with the chill), and some of the Everlasting Bouquets!
The supervised exploring continues as they learn to play nice with the hen and the deer. Learn to play in the woods behind the barn and not across the road almost to the top of the little ridge (yes, I had to go find them and bring them back somewhat unwillingly) But they have learned to run back to the cabin when they need to!
