Seedlings and Chickens


The chickens are enjoying the freedom to roam the yard. They're supposed to stay contained in their own 'playground' but lately have been able to fly over their fence. My husband will clip their wings this weekend to keep them where they're supposed to be. I wouldn't mind, but trying to avoid chicken droppings isn't fun.

My seedlings that I planted in March are doing really good. I put them out on nice days to get some fresh air and direct sunshine.

Normally they're stuck on the windowsill and a table I set up in my bedroom. They do get plenty of sunshine though, even there. On Memorial Day weekend I will plant them in the garden. My father-in-law always said not to plant until that weekend, as we nearly always get one more frost before that. Every year, he's been right.

Ive got a bunch of seedlings going too. I never plant before Mothers day and soemtiems it even stretches to fathers day. Its better to be safe than sorry I guess. I always want those plants out there NOW and then I regret it! :)
