« Part 1: April 6, 2014 Part 2 of Project FIGS series no next part

some spare time + some gorgeous weather = some time outside in the yard.

Story #1:
All winter long I kept trying to use the electricity in the cabin but it wouldn’t work and I had to run an extension cord from another outdoor plug. Frustrating but it worked.
Rick wanted to plug in a tool today and did some detective work. When he pulled out the extension cord that goes into the cabin he found that it had been chewed in two. No wonder I couldn’t get anything to work!!!
The cord is orange so we figured the rabbits must have thought it was a carrot :D

Story #2:
The potted fig tree: I unwrapped the tree, to find that the burlap and the foam that I had used for insulation were still frozen into the ground. The insulation was definitely working.
I was able to slide the fig tree out of its winter home and it looks WONDERFUL.

It is now standing in front of the house, with a little plastic “greenhouse” wrapped around it, (with air vent at the top).

It’s hard to see the tree, with the shadows of the spiral poles but I’m sure you can figure it out ..

Isn’t spring wonderful?

I just set up my fountain, getting ready to put the fish into the pond.

Debbie and Jroot how nice to see the changes after the arrival of spring. I am sure we will get many more posts with pictures from you and other GT as spring advances. I have added one more hobby side by side to gardening. I have started breeding Guppy fish to try getting new variety and it is very interesting. I will post pictures as the hobby progresses. Has anybody of you tried breeding Guppy fish?

Sharad: I haven’t raised guppies but it sounds like you are having fun with it and I’m sure that it is fascinating as well.
