Things outside

We have so much stuff coming up.  Radishes, Turnips, arugula, chard, spinach, onions, leeks, carrots, claytonia, potatoes, mustard greens, amish deer tongue lettuce, sage, kholrabi, cabbage, peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, basil, parsley, cilantro.  The ducks and geese are outside and every morning we herd them into a movable fenced in pen where they can eat all the fresh grass they want.  Our goose with the weak knees seems totally recovered.  The chickens are also outside now and much happier.  Last night we dug 75 pounds of ramps and sold them to restaurants in chicago.  Abra is delivering them whilst in Chicago this weekend for a wedding.  Tomorrow we are off to the suttons bay farmer's market -- where we'll sell radishes, stir-fry greens, flowering cherry boughs, ramps, soap and some seedlings.
All in all, things are looking very good.  Jess has a concert as part of the Northport Chior on Memorial Day at the cemetary.  Brix and Susie are coming up late tonight for the weekend.
