Distractions

9 05 2008

I guess we’ll be enjoying local eggs some time late this summer! We’ve taken the plunge into chicken husbandry. We’ve started small with just two hens (Dorie and Julia) and a rooster (Alton) of the Gold Lace Wyandotte variety. We’ll see how it goes!

Needless to say, we’ve been busy around here building a pen and staring at chickens.

Meanwhile, we’re off to hunt morels this morning. I found one yesterday growing in the driveway of all things.

You are now officially too cool for me to talk to. I would love to do that, but the neighbors, I’m afraid, would really crow if I did. (Boooo)

Hey, Saara. Check out http://dirty-fosco.blogspot.com. The garden is getting fiered up. Any input will, of course, be appreciated, but is not required.;-)

BTW, I love this site. Very cool. And a nice read, also.

Thanks, guys!
You could always get one hen, Fosco. Rooster is not required. It seems you have your hands full though. 🙂 I love your new blog about the community garden!
Nate, are you and Annie doing a tomato blog? *hint*
Here’s mine http://foodweb.wordpress.com/ and I need to update it with my notes. However, that’s pretty much what it looks like right now too.
