The soil felt like it had been waiting for me.
It was cool, damp and crumbly.
I made three rows and dropped in seeds of peas, beets and spinach, covered them and watered the soil.
Once finished, I went to the incubator that I'd turned on the previous evening.
I placed 42 chicken eggs into the warm, damp box and closed the lid.
By the end of March, I hope to have little green shoots and yellow peeping chicks celebrating the arrival of Spring.
