Can't believe I've been away from my blog this long! So much to do around here that I've barely been indoors since finishing my school year at Butler on May 5.
The chicken coop is progressing nicely. I took an extra week to reset my little barn on its foundation. So now I'm looking forward to being chicken-ready by Memorial Day instead of Mother's Day. The interior is near completion. Now I have to dig some post holes and set up the chicken yard.
I found all these four leaf clovers back by the chicken coop. I think I'll have me some lucky chickens.
Look! My first radish! I already ate it in a salad with some fresh-picked lettuce and asparagus.
Bibb lettuce is sooooo photogenic!
The potatoes are growing like crazy!
This beautiful visitor stopped by to admire my poppies.
And some new neighbors took up residence above my downspout. I think they are ambitious sparrows. They built their nest out of last years Siberian iris fronds.
Here's my first peony. It's the fanciest variey in my yard, and always the first to bloom.
My mud shoes sit by the back door, ready for action.
Looks like the weather is finally going to cooperate with us farmers. Dry days and weekend temps in the 80's! Yahooey! I hope to wear sandals to Mike and Steve's Indy 500 party on Sunday, and Leanne's big birthday bash that night. It will be great to take a break from digging and construction to hang out with my pals.
