Yesterday, Nathaniel tilled the big garden. Nearly as soon as he turned off the noisy tiller, the chickens were exploring the fresh dirt!
I let them have their fun, since they are no longer going to be allowed in that space! Elijah and I have already planted some cucumber seeds and a few Better boy tomato plants. I still have lots to plant, but I'm taking a break. Malachi has a friend over.
I also failed to mention that we got two rain barrels:
And they really do work. You can attach a hose to that bottom spigot, and we'll be able to water the garden with rainwater. The first rain we had filled this one right up.
Lastly, I never put on the picture of Malachi bridging over to Weebelos last week. He was excited.
