The chickens polish off the leftover jello,

while Col gets back to work.

    Love it!

    Have you read Farm City by Novella Carpenter? If not, I think you’d really like it. I had no idea up until reading it what you could feed chickens, pigs, etc. Ew and Yay at the same time. :)

    Happy Weekend!

      Kendra, I too love that Col can grab a pair of Rose’s flowered pants and sling ’em on without a thought.

    Col back to work: best four words I’ve heard all day!

    Your kids have an awesome fashion sense.

    So, basically, chickens are garbage disposals? I wonder if my building would let me toss a couple under the sink then? ;)

    FYI: chickens are the great omnivores. They seem to have preferences (macaroni and cheese, corn on the cob, deer fat) but they generally do a beautiful job of converting kitchen scraps to edible protein (eggs) and a quickly usable soil amendment (manure).

    Your chickens and children are beautiful! I never really thought chickens were beautiful but I never knew they ate table scraps either! I always thought your kids were beautiful tho.

    Glad Col’s feeling well enough to get out into the garden! I am getting more and more convinced that we need to get chickens, asap!

    I meant to comment on your last post, but think I forgot. Anyway, someone mentioned Col’s pants. YEAH! My favorite bit about Col is the way he unabashedly dons satin skirts, pink boa-like scarves and flower-power pants. If I have a boy, I totally want him to be like Col.

    Oh, good. Convalescence over and you’ve got your child laborer back.
