Thank you M'dam.
We sure do love our chickens. All of our neighbors do too. Nuttin' better than farm-fresh eggs.
Hoping to get a few dairy goats soon too. Or soon-ish anyway. Big step there; pasture, goat house and milking parlor and all.
I saw in one of your posts that you have bees. We do too. I gotta say, bees are just about the coolest and most interesting pets ever. We really enjoy the bee thing, really fun stuff.
Of course, I baby, and talk to, and think of all the plants as pets too...
Here is a photo from early in the year, just getting this garden area ready for planting. This is our main garden, and the biggest. That's me out there building a trellis of some sort. Chicken house off to the left there.
This year's harvest was Italian and super-long and Fortex pole beans, raspberries, bottle gourds, kale, collards, 'maters, sweet tators, cabbages, snow peas, beets, cukes, okra, punkins, squash, zucchini, Georgia candy roasters, brussels sprouts, russet tators, asparagus, carrots, garlic, onion, leek, all sorts of pepper varieties and several types of herbs... oh and wheat, corn, turnips, etc. We also put up 73 pounds of wild blackberries from up on the hill.
All of those "pets", plus my ol' kitty cat. Yeah, we love our critters and trees and plants and such :)
