This past weekend Matt was able to spend working on the coop. I am sure it will be done before winter, so that is a plus! The ladies (and possibly a male) have been outside for a couple weeks now. My entryway seems huge now, bonus of having 10 chickens living there for 8 weeks, and incredibly clean . I think they are a lot happier being outside - of course. The two groups seem to be getting used to each other just fine. They still tend to stay in their separate groups, but they aren't attacking each other, so I think that is a plus!

While Matt spent time working on the coop, I was able to get some more stuff planted. Whether or not it will actually grow, well that is still up in the air. But, I am trying! I planted swiss chard, beets, pickling cucumbers, zucchini, green beans, yellow wax beans, romaine lettuce, sweet basil and chamomile.
I am very happy to have the warm sun and the ability to spend a lot of time outside. My kids are happier for it, and so is my sanity. I hope you all have been enjoying the beginning of summer!
