Turning the Garden

We've had a spate of nice warm days. Adam is challenging his winter muscles to regain some summer strength. He's turning beds.
 The onion bed/strawberry bed was first.
 But the bed that needed reworking is one of our trellised bed. It was lined with some old tiles that didn't give an adequate barrier against encroaching weeds. Since getting a new roof, we have lots of old metal roofing that Adam can use to line the beds.
 Now that's a liner! This bed had tomatoes last year, but will have peas this spring.
 I put peas in the first section between the two wooden posts. In 2 weeks I'll put the next section of peas in.
The dogs like to help Adam. They give moral support.
 He also put the greenhouse together for me!

 I started some onion seeds, and I put onion sets into the ground in that bed.
 These seed packets were only 88 cents each. I sprinkled them into the front beds near the road. I want a splash of color this spring!
 I love the color variety from my hens these days.
 But the yolk color is always just like this:

My first daffodil of the year!
What a happy sight!
