Side Yard Update

Inside the hoop house

Garlic and kale

Carrots on the left and through the middle, bibb lettuce sprouting next to it, garlic in the foreground, onions in the middle, and lettuce in the back- the red leaves over-wintered from last fall.


Cilantro- Becca's favorite



We also have broccoli raab planted with the spinach and cilantro, and sunflowers, oregano, broccoli, and bok choy are in pots in the hoop house to harden off.

Yolko, Fanny, and Chica love their coop! Mother Clucker hasn't figured out how to get up there, or maybe she can't fly...

Chica watches Rosco play frisbee

The curiosity is mutual!

    Chicka is my favorite…but for some reason I have taken to calling her Frieda….think it is a DH Lawrence thing…just got back from Taos and Lawrence’s wife was named Frieda.
