    For “off season” “quiet time” it is obvious you have been busy, but your cats are slackers LOL

    Thank you very very much, Michelle, for sending me these beautiful Spring pictures of the farm! They evoke in me wonderful memories… I am glad to see that the French Petite plum trees are doing extremely well, and so are all your seedlings. The season promises to be an excellent one! And you have two healthy-looking kitties to keep the rodents at bay. Best, Bernard

    Looks wonderful! Can you believe the colors of the Chard and the Mizuna – wow! And, I like the names of your kitties. I hope they serve as indicators of their hunting prowess. Watch out, gophers!

    Thanks for sharing Michelle. Looks pretty magical. Hope Hubertus and Artemis are able to pick up the slack for those other freeloaders you’ve got. 🙂
