What a wonderful sunrise!
The air conditioning is finally off, the windows are open, and wow the sun is shining!
Ginny - This is your little gal. She has "racing stripes" on her eyes. She's gonna be a beauty for sure.
I've got a busy day ahead but wanted to get some notes in and a quick update on our crazy hatch. We now have a total of 15 (or sixteen?) chicks - all one or two days apart. I moved them our of their brooder and into a kiddie in the basement.
The mob. I love how they are all in a clump.
A kiddie pool is a great grow-out area for babies. They are cheap (this one was $9), easy to clean, provides a 'wind break' to keep the breeze out, and gives them plenty of space to run around. Yesterday I snuck up on them and they were all sprawled in all directions - kinda like someone threw a chick grenade and there was little chick shrapnel everywhere. They are just hilarious.
Little Baldy is still their leader. Here he's making sure that the new arrivals are well supervised.
Planting notes for the square garden (sorry for the cryptic notes, folks, this is just a list so I remember):
Starting in the corner by the gate:
Next to the far gate:
Beans + sunflowers

Beats + radishes (??? dang, now I cant remember!)

Long row before raised bed:
Happy Wednesday everyone!
