So yesterday, on the way home from the garden center, Rick and I spied this and just had to take a picture!! It was just too funny.
Yesterday we spent the morning planning and scheming for this year’s garden. Then we went to a new -to us- garden center called Arapahoe Acres down on Santa Fe. We picked up a bunch of seeds in preparation for today!
This morning we dusted off the shovels and got the garden started. We planted the peas, lettuce, spinach, kale, carrots, radishes and onions. OH! And brussel sprouts! (I know, I’m crazy to be excited about brussel sprouts). And we had a little help in the garden:
The peepers came and explored the dirt and Henry looked on while we planted the rows.
Then it was off to Murdoch’s again to pick up the rest of our flock… I was planning on two Rhode Island Reds, but, again, they did not have any. So I got a New Hampshire Red, a Golden Laced Wyandotte AND a Blue Andalusian. I know, that’s three more, not two. I just couldn’t resist the cuteness. Here they all are:
Isn’t the size difference between 1 day and 1 week amazing! This is how they should all look as adults (I copied the pictures from Murdoch’s web page…. I think they got them from the hatchery page??):
I think I need to go live on a farm.
