Well, we still have chickens in our living room. I mean, they’re in a large bin thing that we clean out daily, but still.
They still need to be under the heat lamps but they are growing so fast. This was the first time we brought them outside to play; so fun to watch them peck around.
Their new home is going to be right here:
On the left; where all that honeysuckle is now.
We are going to clear out a large area for their coop and a fenced pen. Construction begins this weekend!
Non-native (and very invasive) honeysuckle)
A volunteer pansy
Cardinal in our backyard (tons of them!)
Does anyone know what this is? I don’t but I tasted it and it is thick like spinach and lemony. I am hoping it is edible so I can add it to salads.
It grows in clumps like this and has a connected root system. (Ignore the kohlrabi intermixed with the mystery plant, I know what that is! ha!)
Yellow Wonder Wild Strawberry blossom
Lambs Quarters; which I usually weed but recently found it was edible (related to amaranth and looks much like quinoa plants) so am letting it grow freely in the garden this year.
So much garlic!
Eating dill (tons of volunteer dill plants popping up)
She is also learning to cook outdoors:

The last concert of elementary school!
We are glad he has decided to continue cello into middle school!
He has also been very busy with baseball.
Making a pit stop to look at these guys on the way home from a game
They reminded me of that book Where the Wild Things Are!
We also stopped and took in this very scenic view!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
