The ladies are all moved in and settling in nicely! They’re nestled between a large stand of blackberries, a small orchard and a garden full of herbs. I can’t think of a better place for them.

I unearthed this video today, and it made me smile…
Last weekend Dad put together a few raised beds for the backyard! One is 3 x 5 feet and the other is 3×3. Delightful. I ordered organic soil from Dean Innovations here in Portland and started filling the beds yesterday morning.I planted all the starts that are big enough later that afternoon. There are two tomatoes, two tomatillos, nasturtiums, lettuce, arugula, broccoli, kohlrabi, a fennel plant, marigolds and johnny jump upsÂ in the larger box.
And chard, leeks, nasturtium, broccoli, kohlrabi, johnny jump ups and chamomile in the smaller box. I also have a happy artichoke plant in a large terracotta pot. I can’t wait for things to really take off in a week or two!
