It’s been a wild weather week here in Kentucky! In the last week, we’ve had morning temps as low as 2*, snow, freezing rain, 70* temps, then morning temps as low as 2*, and snow. In that order! On the 70* day, my son found a dandelion in the yard and brought it to me.
Here is what my Daffodils looked like this morning.
We’ are still under a winter weather advisory until tomorrow morning, with more snow coming. Crazy Kentucky weather! lol Oh, did I mention the Kentucky mud? Because when the weather warmed up, all the snow and ice melted to make a lovely red mud. Then it rained for two days. At least the mud is freezing again now. lol So needless to say, the only gardening I’ve done this week is thinking about what I’m going to plant.
Since we’re down to one dog and three cats, all outdoor, the outdoor chores are a minimum right now. Other than making sure the dog and cats have a warm place to sleep. And extra food to eat. I can’t wait for spring and some new chickens, though. I want some fresh eggs again!
