They will be here soon.
Six Frizzles, and four Silkies.
We can not wait.
It looks like Maine is getting an early spring this year, and I am thankful.
This morning we went out to check on our girls. It is so nice that they can walk around the yard now.
Stepping outside in the sunshine, grabbing a few fresh eggs and going right back inside to cook them is such a luxury. So darn good.
I have been growing herbs on the window sill for over a month now. They are doing so well, I think I will continue to do so all year long.
I have been thinking, our chickens are older now, sure to wander into the vegetable and flower gardens this year. It is more important us to let them free range whenever we can, rather than have a show garden. I have read a lot on line, and the consensus seems to be that you can not do both.
Any thoughts? I would love to still be able to do both. I am thinking that we will grow herbs on our deck in big urns, instead of flowers. Maybe different varieties of lettuce too. Won't that look pretty in a big white urn? I think some of those upside down tomato things too. We have a few spots where the chickens can not get to them.
If you own, or have owned chickens and have a garden, I would love some tips, ideas, thoughts...anything.
