We went to IFA to get lawn fertilizer and seeds, and came home with 2 chicks we hadn't planned on. I guess it's my fault. I had seen an article in the newspaper about a new trend to have chicken coops in your yard. I thought that would be fun...and we have animal rights. It would be easy to build a chicken coop out by the barn....right Gary??? Well, Jaycee has been talking about getting some chicks for 2 weeks now and we just gave in. What an adventure!
We started cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, red/green peppers, beets, onions, and zinnias. We'll plant peas as soon as we get the ground tilled. We are planning on putting in a big garden this year. Our kids (married and at home) all expressed an interest in helping us with the garden, so hopefully it will be a success. It would be awesome if we had a big enough crop to do our canning this fall from our garden.
