Millie is one happy grrl among a bunch of happy chicks.
Their winter was as hard as ours but they still gave us daily eggs. The chickengrrls prefer to be fed fresh lettuce by hand and, while eating, they'll allow you to give them a pet. A winter of being cooped up has left them a little skittish, so I'm trying to spend more time petting and loving them.
The weekend was a mix of beautiful blue skies (lilacs!) and ferocious thunderstorms. Spring weather continues to be mixed up and unsettled. Between storms, and despite the cloudy days, we spent time planting and tending the garden. The chives are on the verge of popping their tops.
Last fall we planted garlic and it growing well, along with a variety of onions, though wind, rain, snow and hurricanos!
