Hens and Veggies

The ninja turtles are growing mighty quickly.

Here are the babes on a rainy May 21st afternoon:

And here they are again on May 26th (Donatello was walking around looking for worms):

This crazy springtime weather is doing lovely things to my garden!

These are the broccoli and romaine starts my mama got me for my birthday:

These are my peas I planted as seeds about a month ago.

VoilĂ ! Le jardin. There are many other things planted but they are either teensy weensy or have not yet germinated and come up from the soil.

Oh yes, and I cannot forget my indoor plantlings.

Mon Jardin

April 11
I started edging along the grass with a shovel,
and this made me realize how overgrown the area was.

Pretty gross.

The boys began making a much-needed chicken coop from a
beer pong table that was given to us from our past neighbors.

Et voilĂ !
It's small for now and the cover is so that predators don't get our little gals.

The babes love being outside.

The garden is bordered and the plants from my mama are in the soil,
along with some of my seedlings.

The chicks are getting big!

And they love organic baby spring greens.
