What a gorgeous weekend it's been! Happy Memorial Day to you. I hope you're enjoying it too. We've been preparing to plant our garden and also expecting the arrival of our chicks that arrive this week. Twelve baby chicks will be here on Wednesday or Thursday and I can't wait to show you pictures! We've talked about getting chickens for several years so I'm excited that we're finally getting them.
We've been clearing out a few trees in our yard preparing for the chicken coop that hubby will be building. The chicks stay indoors for about a month so we have a little time. With the trees that have come down I now have a very sunny spot along the side of my house that I could only have shade plants there.
Now it's a nice and sunny spot so I planted some basil, parsley, thyme and cilantro. I already had chives growing there and a few flowers. It's right outside our kitchen door so I love that I now have this little sweet smelling spot to grow and pick my herbs! The back yard is in a bit of disarray but we do have a vision of what we want it to be. With time, I see strawberries, blueberries and a small orchard. We'll get there eventually. Hope you're enjoying your day.
