This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

chickens out for a walk

My chickens went out for a mid-winter walk today. No snow left here - they had lots of scratching to do.

In the middle of their walk, Ginger the brown Auracana all of a sudden jumped up, left the group, ran for the laying box and left me that blue egg. I'm getting 2 or 3 eggs a day now. Only Bertha, the big white Brahma isn't laying yet.

Wish I could have chickens, but no room for them, sadly. Jen

Aw, I wish I could get some chickens; they always look so cute. Don't think my dogs would play well with them though!
