This weekend we flattened out the back yard and put in 8 raised beds. It was a lot like a barn raising, but without the barn. Our friends and family did most of the work and I pretty much just shouted orders and wrote the checks. We are sharing our yard with a couple of our friends, so we will all share the weeding responsibilities AND the huge crop of vegetables.
But more importantly, I just got 3 baby chicks. We still have to build a coop, and for the next 6 weeks they have to live in the garage in a washtub with a heat lamp!!! They are so sweet and little, and already have very bossy personalities. They are named Patsy, Wynonna and Loretta. Patsy will someday lay green and blue eggs! I couldn't be more proud.
