setting up the garden
We worked in the back yard today. We built these teepee style trellis'. We have corn, squash, pumpkin and beans planted around them. I also put the soaker hose down and covered the whole thing with wood chips. The final act was putting up a chicken wire fence to keep the kids and chickens out for the summer. We have put a lot of work in preparing the soil for this garden, so I am looking forward to seeing how it does.
The baby chicks also went out to the hen house today. They seem to be doing fine. The big girls have pecked on them a bit, but everyone seems to have gone to seperate places and appear to be calm.
