Getting ready

It's February now and we are getting ready for spring. There is a foot of snow on the ground, but we know it won't be long now.
We currently have cold weather plants in the cold frames that were planted last fall that are just waiting for warmer temperatures to really take off. We also have three rabbits (one male and two females) and we are waiting for warmer weather before breeding them.
This year we are moving the compost pile. The current location is not large enough any more. Any compost that is ready will be used in the raised beds I finished before winter set in and the rest will be moved to the new location.
Also on the to do list is building a shed. It will be used to house the rabbits and chicken in cold weather and to site yard tools when the animals are in their hutches. The plan is to do that this week while the weather is above freezing. I'll post pictures when complete.
I leave you a picture of one of my daughters with a rabbit. She really is excited holding him.
