Not much happened in January. I had a bad cold. We had some really cold weather. And I worked on a new chicken house -- sized for 25 laying hens. I'll post pictures of it when I have it closer to being done.

We did plant a bunch of walla walla sweet onions today. One bunch = one row. We could use a couple more rows. $3/bunch at Cenex. Pretty good looking onion sets, not like last years half dried out sets. You plant walla wallas from pencil-like starts. These were a good quarter inch in diameter.

Jennie also cleaned up the rose bed and the raised vegetable bed. I'm considering putting a hoop cover over the raised bed. We could probably get lettuce and spinach a month earlier that way.
