The chickens have all grown up and now have free range of the gardens when we are outside working. They are great gardening companions and I doubt we'll have much of a bug problem around here this year. It's fun to watch them run around the garden and they each have their own little chicken personalities.
Sgt tilled a space in the upper garden today so I could get to planting my potato garden. The potatoes took up to much space last year in the lower veggie garden, so this year I decided to expand the top garden by adding another garden bed. I'm also hoping to make a space up there for zucchini and pumpkins.
I've also been having some luck at yard sales. Yesterday Sgt and I stopped off at one in a retirement area and found this 1950's umbrella. Yup, now I have three really cool, 1950's, turquoise patio umbrellas. For some strange reason I keep running across them?? So, I guess I'll just keep buying them...after all, they look fab in the garden!
We also went for a short motorcycle ride, did some laundry, Sgt went to the grocery store, and we ate some yummy strawberries. Not such a bad weekend in my opinion!
