I picked fresh strawberries from the garden this week! Okay, so I kind of cheated, but I did pick them and they were growing in my garden. Never mind that my husband bought mature plants full of unripened fruit. I just had to stick them in the ground and watch them turn from a ghostly shade of white to a delicious deep red.
We were enjoying a mild winter here in the Midwest. . . until this week, as we fell into an extended deep freeze that made me really thankful for roaring fires, cozy sweaters and super fuzzy socks. Unfortunately, our chicken friends have none of these same luxuries, but we did bundle them up a bit to face the bitter cold.
I am so excited to share our latest home improvement project with all of you. While my husband may argue that it isn’t really an improvement, I am simply in love with our new farm-inspired slamming screen door! I have had designs on this door for over eight years now and with the completion of several other porch projects, it was finally time to see (and hear) this baby do its thing.
