Preparing for Spring

Preparing for Spring

Chickens:

We have five chickens now. They won’t be ready to lay until this summer. They are so sweet and so fun.

 

We have a Buff Orpington, a New Hampshire Red, and a Brown Longhorn. We also have some pure breeds which are a blue cochin and a black silkie bantam.

 

Garden:

Last year’s garden was so successful that we decided to expand it and also to give each child a small plot to grow what they want to. We suggested themes and many of them chose color themes. I ordered the seeds from an Heirloom site online called rareseeds.com. Here is what we ended up with.  chicks2
