It's Time to Grow...

Thursday, May 14, 2009

...some vegetables and some more chickens. Yep, it's that time. Spring is always a lot of work and yet a lot of fun out here. Mother's day weekend has come to be my weekend for putting in the garden. It's kind of our official frost-free date around here. Well, the rows were turned, the weeds pulled, and the veggies were planted. They look so much happier out here than in their little transplant pots!
As if there isn't enough to do around here, we added a 2nd chicken house... it's the "Kindergarten" house. It's a miniature house made to keep the new baby chickens separate from the big girls until they're acclimated and ready to hold their own out in the "wild" - ha ha ha! Courtney did a fantastic job on it. I'm always amazed at the amount of thought and design he puts into this stuff. And his buildings are built to withstand hurricane force winds... quite literally. Amazing.

Derecho tested even! I was pleasantly suprised to come home last Friday and find the exposed, south-facing coop I'd just finished building still had a roof. They don't call'em hurricane ties for nothing I guess!
