Latest Happenings

Too much going on. Not enough time. Lots of rain. Everything growing.
Hops vines reaching for the sky with flowers just starting.

Peapods all over the place. Had them with Red Curry Beef in Coconut & Cilantro over Thai Rice Noodles for dinner.
Chicks out of the brooder and on grass. I gave them an egg box to hide in so Megs can't reach through the wire, grab them while they are sleeping and chew off their heads.
Juvenile cockerels inspecting their new digs.
The chicken tractor back at work for another season.
