Happy Easter. This morning I planted some seeds for chives and chamomile in buckets. These buckets will be the permanent home of these plants. The chives are perennial, so they'll just keep growing in their bucket. The chamomile is supposed to readily self-seed, so I'm hoping it will do well and come back year after year, re-growing itself.
And then of course the weather forecast changed from 30% chance of snow on Tuesday, to 80% chance for tonight, Monday, and Tuesday with up to four inches possible. Well, I'm glad I haven't winter sown any tomatoes or peppers yet! I'm hoping this will be our last snow until the end of the year (fingers crossed, but this is Minnesota, and we've been known to get snow in June).
In other news, we're trying to introduce the Vikings to hard food, but they're not impressed just yet. They're over five weeks old now and need to make this critical transition as soon as possible before Mabel loses interest in nursing them. They do seem to like the food moistened, but then the other cats eat it faster than we can soak it. I'm sure barn cats do not have someone there to mush their food up, and they survive just fine. I hope Lagertha and Floki can figure this out soon!
