Our 17 pullets are growing fast. We've decided that chicks are a must every spring- they provide hours of outdoor entertainment for our kids! They are living happily in the chicken tractor for now.
Baby, stick-trees do begin to look like real fruit trees after awhile- take heart! This is the first year that I think our peach and apple trees have trunks that actually look like trees instead of sticks.
Our two hives all set and ready to go.
Leaves on trees mean shade once again.
Our first couple spears of asparagus with onions behind.
A really neat trick of Jamey's- place tomato cages over fall-planted garlic. It allows the garlic to come up and the chickens to be in the garden at the same time. The cages keep the chickens from scratching up the garlic.
Our second blueberry bed in complete with age-old railroad ties. A little stone wall is being constructed on this side of the white work shop for the remaining few bushes.
