It's SUMMER time!!

Okay, well not actually but close!! The weather this week is supposed to be wonderful and we got the garden started!

I got everything rototilled, then expanded some more...and may have to expand even MORE now. We got corn, lettuce, carrots, beans, peas, cucumbers (2 types), 3 types of squash, pumpkin, eggplant, 3 types of pepper (orange, red, green), 7 types of Tomato's (and have a couple more starts I need to transplant later). The kids are excited and helped plant everything. A friend gave us some starts and as she's been planting she's running out of room, so I may expand the garden even more so we can get some more veggies planted for her.
The chickens are about the only ones not so happy with the new development...

Because we have the garden going they have to stay in the chicken run unless we are out there with them. They were out running around yesterday for the "last" time for awhile...They aren't so happy with the chicken run today...The bunnies even got some outside time ...
Now it's back to our normal school more outside time since it's so nice...may have to go and spend some time at the creek soon.
