You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. The temps were in the 70’s, no wind, sunshine and an extra hour of daylight which means it’s 7:30 p.m. and Vince still hasn’t come in the house for dinner.
Vince worked on the chicken coop. He said the hardest part is done . . which was getting the posts cemented into the ground and getting everything level and square although I think I have all that in the wrong order. The cement was done last. Lots of measuring and moving and measuring and moving but he said he feels like he accomplished a lot today.
See the sun setting . . peaking through the trees. Told you it was a beautiful day here in our part of Texas.
Here’s a bit wider view of where the coop sits.
In the background sits the garden, not yet planted because the fence isn’t up. There’s only so much Vince can get done but with it staying daylight longer in the evenings, I think we’ll get a whole lot more done.
For the garden, we bought Zipper Cream Peas, Purple Hull Peas, Contender Green Beans, and Alaska Peas while we were out yesterday. I already had quite a few seeds that I had ordered. I’m pretty picky about trying to get heirloom and non-GMO seeds so I mostly order them but was happy to find a few here locally. I also have potatoes and asparagus to plant, as well as strawberries but I’m not going to plant the strawberries in the garden and may not plant the asparagus in there either. Everything has to be fenced so the deer can’t get it so we’ll have to see where things end up. I’m so ready to plant something . . anything . . anywhere!
