Some of the residents of the chick-house
(What -- were you expecting a picture of a dead chicken?)
I'm happy to say that the garden is producing a-plenty, and if you live anywhere near me and have a craving for cucumbers or green beans, please let me know. It's interesting to see what thrives in our soil, and right now cucumbers are taking over! I like them, but I'm the only one in the family who will eat them, so about five per day is more than we can deal with. Luckily, the chickens love eating them and the kids love feeding them to the chickens. Too bad that isn't one of the magic cures for chicken cannibalism. We also have blueberries, blackberries, peaches, herbs, and beans out the wah-zoo. I love all of the fresh veggies at my doorstep and feel blessed that we have access to land and soil and the time to do it ourselves!
If I could bottle the smell of this peach tree, I'd be a millionaire.
It's such a treat to head out to the yard every afternoon at snack-time.
I'm drooling over the green tomatoes and waiting not-so-patiently for my favorite summer meal -- tomato, basil, and mozzarella sandwiches. Yum!
