The Chicken And A Tomato

Watching the chickens find a bug or morsel that excites them can be pure entertainment. We had a tomato that was a little over-ripe and Annie got a hold of it. Running around the yard, flinging it side to side, and rolling it in the dirt; the other chicken dare not mess with her when she has a prize like this.

Welcome Home

We came home from a week vacation to a garden ready to be picked. The eggplants are the survivor of the garden, seemingly un-phased by lack of water or too much heat. Some of our tomato plants aren't happy with the soil so we're hoping transferring to pots will help. I picked our rainbow carrots and pulled up the 'running man'. There's a few jokes in there...
The first okra of the season was ready and the final strawberry was bright red. I think that means summer is officially here.
