|Myself and Partner with Chickens; photo by Franklin|
Franklin and I moved the chickens to a new patch of lawn. Partner dusted the hen house with DE (to kill chicken mites).
We all went to the garden center and looked around, and bought three big bags of potting compost; I planted up an old slightly broken plastic laundry basket, and sowed some seeds in a few trays and planters.
|Laundry basket planter: classy!|
I hung out the laundry on the line, and Partner and I both dashed out to save it from the rain (it stopped a minute later). Franklin and Partner played games on the Wii. I picked lots of of berberis berries for the chickens; I staked a tall snapdragon next to the patio. We ate some of the strawberry rhubarb jam I made, spread on rye crackers.
It was a good day, especially since we spent it together as a family.
