Yesterday Vince dug up three rows in the garden so he can get that area ready for me to plant purple hull peas. He dug up the lettuce row as the lettuce had mostly bolted but there was only about half a row there. He dug up the chard which had also bolted in the heat and he dug up what was left of the carrots from the first planting.
We gave some of the leftover plants to the chickens. They loved the two rainbow chard that somehow the grasshoppers had missed last fall. The chickens stripped it clean.
This is the pile we saved for them to have this morning. They’ll be so excited to have a huge mound of chard.
They probably all had belly aches last night from all the greens they ate yesterday. I’ll be anxious to see if their egg yolks are brighter or bigger.
The best part of the day — every evening we sit out on the porch almost til dark.
We enjoy the hummingbirds, usually get a visit from a couple of rabbits, which Vince thinks are the two babies that we found in the flower bed during the winter, the cows come by from time to time, every now and then a turkey ventures out from the woods, and the deer must be getting over their trauma from hunting season because we’re seeing them again.
Life is good!
Yes, I had my shower already and that’s my knee with my crazy pajama pants on.
