Vicki we posted at the same time so mine came in right after yours. The garden looks so yummy all the fresh stuff.
Dr. Seuss (she lays green eggs)
The chicken run
Coop with nesting boxes
Ok we did that again, how weird.
WHOAAAAAAAA!!! CHICKENS!!!!!! That's pretty cool. Can you like...pet them? xDlol ok idk.
Green eggs? o.o Never heard of them coming from a chicken
Hehehe I see that!
Thanks..We tried some new stuff this year. Out in my front yard by my drive way we have corn growing. Sounds funky huh lol but my parents did it back when I was a kid so I thought why not, don't want to waste land! I also have a few tomatoe plants in the front yard under a tree. They are called San Francisco Fog tomatos and do well in cooler areas. We'll see how those go. They died last year in the full sun, oops.
We got zucinni, squash,pumpkin, potatos, tomatos,beans, corn, peas....
Wow that is a lot of stuff, very cool, no wonder why my crabs love all the stuff I just got from the store.
I didn't get them as baby chicks, so they are still wary of us. They are much better then when we first got them, they'd run all over the place. LOL Now they get within a foot of me cause they know I usually got some treat to give them.
My dogs didn't like them at first, wasn't sure how well that would go with them free ranging. Now, they don't even notice.
I do want to get a few more but I'd like to try chicks. I hate the idea of shipping them to my house, but most places don't sex them first and we can't have roosters in our city. If you ever get a chance to eat farm fresh eggs, go for it. I will never go back to buying them from a store ever.
Chermo you and I are on a posting roll LOL
Chermo fresh is best! Mine will always go for fresh before anything else.
Do you have any rose bushes? Even mini ones where you can grow them in the pots would work. I am still on the look out for a yellow and orange rosebush. The petals dry really easy and I always throw some fresh ones in there. The tank looks like it has confetti in it the next day LOL
We sure are
Wow Vicki! That's so cool that you have all these chickens and stuff. I don't think you are even allowed to keep farm animals in seattle. I tryed to convince my mom to let me buy a tomato plant yesterday because my turtle, turner is supposed to like them but she would not let me.
You have chickens!?!? That's so AWESOME!!!! They're so cute! I love your doggies too! I wish I lived on a farm!
How did we get from corn husks to chickens??
I probably hijacked the thread LOL sorry.
I don't live on a farm. I wish I did though too. I've been wanting to not have neighbors that are so close, more land to let my kids roam on and be safe and to grow things. A friend of mine in Michigan has a couple acres and it's just beautiful.
Farms are awesome! I don't like it when houses are close together either. I always wanted a really big backyard! We have a garden too but it's small. I love watering it.
I've wanted a farm FOREVER! Oh gosh! It would be SOOOO awesome. WIth pigs and sheep and cows and and horses and plants...
Me too!!!! But I would never kill them for food! It would be too sad.
I know. I want to be vegetarian but too much is going on and I have not had time to think about it too much.
LOL If you didn't kill the animals, they'd soon reproduce and breed all over the farm until they took it over. What on earth would you do then? You've spent all that money in buying stuff for them and buying food, then to not eat them yourself or else not sell them to other markets would be a total waste of money and you might go bankrupt.
LOL! I would sell their eggs and milk, and I would teach them tricks and enter them in shows. And maybe on the weekend my farm would be a petting zoo!
I'm becoming a vegetarian when I'm 16! So it will be easier, I'm quitting more types of meat every few months. Currently I don't eat pork, crab, buffalo, veal, lamb, and some other things that I forgot. I'm probably going to quit chicken and turkey last.
