Happy Friday! This evening when I was out to water the garden and feed the chickens, I took a few photos. ( I started this post last night, and got sleepy, so had to finish it this morning) The chicks now spend the day time in the coop and run, but I keep them separated from the big girls. They have grown so much. And that one baby chick that they told me was a Lakenvelder, is not!! She is a Polish. Check out that frizzy hairdo!
The garden is really taking off. I have oodles of zuchinni and yellow squash.
Can you see all of those squash peeking out in through the leaves?
After I harvested all of my cilantro, I planted more. So the bare spaces that you see, will soon be filling in with more fresh cilantro. I also planted another patch of sweet basil.
I even found a nice spot behind the squash boxes to plant a few more corn stalks, and a small patch of sweet peas.
I love the tendrils on the pumpkin plants. They are so long and curl like perfect ringlets.
Below is my stacked drawers container for my cantaloupe. The cantaloupe with climb up the chain links as well as spill out onto the ground in front. They need some space. But you can use vertical space!!!
I did plant a few extry over on pumpkin hill, but they will undoubtedly get smothered in the pumpkin plants that are doing so well.
