We've been doing a bit of garden prep, me and the husband... oh yes, and the chickens. Now that the nights are promising to stay above freezing we are eager to get things in the ground. I'm always a little bit late planting because I don't have any confidence until I'm warm. It seems reasonable to me that if I'm not comfortable, the seeds and seedlings couldn't possibly be alright. So after adding a few yards, the soil level is acceptable, the tomato plants are being hardened as we speak and the final deed has been done... we clipped the chickens wings as seen on this 35 second Youtube post so that we can control their coming ins and going outs. They'll be allowed to free range without supervision again after the plants grow large enough to handle intrusion because the chickens... they will intrude!
Mr. Grill did a fine job with the marinated elk steak, mushrooms and zucchini. It was a beautiful day and within the next few, the beans, tomatoes, peppers, cilantro and basil will be up and running... well, they will be in and growing.
Now, I'm off to add a few more rows to the Maile before heading to bed.
