Hiya! Popping by to share some Friday Fun Facts with you. Last week, Marcus shared his past jobs with you and now it’s my turn!
Winter vanished in days, and then so did April and May!
As usual spring in Alberta is a flurry of activity. We’ve been busy planting out the market gardens, building mobile chicken coops, fixing watering systems, setting up irrigation, and getting corrals set up. We’ve got 25 laying hens in the gawky pullet stage, and cows on the way in the next week or so. A flurry of activity! Thankfully we have our hired hand, Lachlan, who has been an absolute work horse while Marcus runs around wrangling paperwork to parts sourcing.
About time for another round of Friday Fun Facts, where you get to learn a little bit more about our contributors. Today Marcus shares his past jobs with you. Past employment does not, by any means, define you, but it is an interesting way to see where you have been at different stages in life. I always find it fascinating to learn where people have worked!
We’ve recently been talking about edible flowers on the blog, specifically dandelions. Today I wanted to share about my new obsession, lilacs! I’ve had it in mind to try baking with lilacs for a few years, but our lilac blossoms come & go so quickly. This year, I was able to catch them just in time!
Summer is fast approaching, but I’ve been trying to take note of our spring garden treats. Spring in Calgary can go by so quickly! One of our shortest seasons. Blossoms today, gone tomorrow. Our simple backyard garden in the city offers some lovely nibbles though & that’s what I want to share with you today.
