It sure is Spring!

Things are going well here at Green Gambrels. Here are a few photos of what's been going on outside.

Mom and Dad planted our potatoes.

The kitties helped!
"Look out Ollie, or you'll get planted!"
A friend of ours gave us two more chickens...
This white one is actually a meat bird. He's getting pretty big! :-)
On one of our trips between New Hampshire and Maine we picked up some dog kennel style fencing, which we're using as a "chicken kennel".

 Dad planted grass in his orchard, and it is coming up nicely!
His trees are also growing well.

Now here are some photos from the inside....

The latest addition to our household is....
another cat!
You may get the idea from this photo that he's pretty small. :-) We don't know exactly how old he is right now, but he may be around 4-5 weeks. He's an orphaned kitten, and some friends of ours in NH were raising him but they didn't want to keep him, so we took him home with us.

He likes his milk....
 ...and his teddy bear...
 and, of course, all of our shoes. :-)

Here are some photos of the upstairs construction.
The bathroom is almost completely done. The plumbing was inspected and approved, and the only thing that remains now is for the trim and molding to be put up. The floor is down too, and it looks really nice!

So that's most of what is new around here. :-)

Julia, I am so thankful for this post. You have such a beautiful area. Your garden is so big...Did you till this up this year.. or was the garden ground prepared in an earlier year. And you have chickens not to mention cats. It sounds like you all will have a wonderful summer.

Good post, Julie! I can't wait to see all the progress when I come up - everything looks great!

Awww, the kitty is so cute! Haha, I love the shoe picture! Do you have a name for him yet?
