Looks great, Bruce! I'm looking forward to seeing some green growing.

What is in the beds with the wooden 4x4 timbers around the perimeter?

Snow is melted in the field and I was actually able to drive down there yesterday. Warm weather all week might bring the frost out of the ground.

We have lots of plants seeded in trays and most are up. We'll seed melons in a couple of weeks.

We're maple sugaring now. It's been a strange season with very little sap run to-date.

Colin, nothing in the beds yet, but I'll have squash in one & cukes in the other. I trellis the cukes to keep them off the ground. And, all the litter out of the chicken coop goes in those beds! No, the veggies don't taste like chicken.... ;)

Bruce, When you have it trellised, I would really like to see a photo of your set-up, if you don't mind.

Do you sell your eggs, or are they for home use only?

Here you go Colin.

When I set the plants, (usually 4/15 ) I cover the "trellis" w/ Remax. Keeps them warm. I take it off after a few weeks.

The "trellis" is left over ends of cattle fencing.

We just keep the chickens for us; way too many vendors at our market selling eggs. And besides, backyard chickens are pretty popular around here.

Nifty! I would imagine this keeps the cukes cleaner. Do you have to train the vines to keep them on the trellis?

Chickens are really nice to have around the place, but I agree with you...eggs are overly plentiful and under-valued. They're easy for the hobbyist to raise and the hobbyist isn't concerned about covering expenses & labor.

" Do you have to train the vines to keep them on the trellis? "

Yes, I pull the vine up on top of the trellis.
