It's SO WARM!!

Today was 27 degrees, and yes, I got my first sunburn. Just a little pink and itchy on my neck, face and forearms. I think it might be time to break out the sunscreen and sun hat. Hard to believe it's March in Nova Scotia with weather like this!

We got the plastic taped together for the greenhouse and tomorrow we'll get it all ready to go over top of the frame. Should be fun if it's breezy like it was today!

The chicks are growing by leaps and bounds. They're still small of course but the amount of food and water they're consuming is increasing rapidly. Speaking of which I should go check on them as they're making lots of cheeping noises. This is probably their last night in the house.

They're all fine. Cleaned and refilled their waterer and they've still got clean food. I think that once they have a drink they'll all quiet down for the night. Maybe if Meghan turns off the light it'll help as well.

I'm just in the middle of making a rough map of the property in Victoria Vale to show the lie of the land. I'm not the best at drawing so hopefully other people will still be able to read it and find it useful. We're still optimistic that we'll find a way to buy it. Like I mentioned the other day...I'm going to have to sell an awful lot of tomato plants! Well, that's partly what the greenhouse is for, to help them along once they're a reasonable size and once they are re-potted ready to sell. Does anyone know what the going rate for heritage tomato plants is?

Anyways, I've got to run. Well not run...sleep!

Have a lovely night or day, depending on when you read this.

  1. Hi there. Just happened upon your blog looking up beekeeping info (I'm a beekeeper in Halifax) and noticed you're looking for land in the valley, and particularly in Victoria Vale. A good friend of mine has land there and is trying to buy a huge tract of adjoining forest with a group of people to start some sort of ecovillage. He'd be worth contacting, for sure, to see if his project would fit with your needs.
