Chicks and Garden

We're in the growing season now, for both chicks and plants.  The chicks are getting bigger all the time:
As you can see, the black astrolop chick on the right is a cockerel.  That's a buff orpington chick in the middle of the astrolops.

On the left is a silver laced Wyandotte.  The others are unidentified.  :)
We have 10 chicks, and still the same 6 hens (which right now are giving themselves dust baths/naps by the shed).
The tomato plants look healthy, too.

The peppers look healthy, but very, very small right now.  They enjoy the hotter weather to really get growing, but we've had really mild temperatures so far.  I'm not complaining, though!  (And I'm sure it will get hot soon.  It's already muggy and hotter today.)  Also, the crescent beans look fabulous, and the broccoli looks decent.  Most of the herbs are in pots, and they are growing well.  The tomatillos even have blooms on them, and the raspberries are growing.  Cucumbers and a couple of cantaloupes have sprouted.  Things are going well so far.  Hopefully this continues!
