Chickens and gardening

 Tomatoe starts in the greenhouse

           Goodness,  we have the best rain ever this week  It was over 5 inches at the farm and everything including the chickens enjoyed it.  The crops really started growing and the garden really looks good except that now I need to go weed it.   I have several things that have not sprouted yet and I am going to give them about another week before I get more seeds and replant.  We did have a cold nigh right after I planted, but I did not think that would hurt the seeds.

          The quilt machine is back up and running and I am getting caught up on several outstanding projects.  I am happy that I am getting caught up, but still have a long list of quilts that I want to do.

                                                          an out of control squash already,  

 Monday the new chicks are going outside for the first time the weather is nice enough for them to be there. and we have fenced off an area in the big coop  for them to get used to and the older girls to get used to them.  They have certainly grown in the past week and there is not a lot of room in the pen.

                                 Well,  that’s all the news from the south,
