Anyway, enough about me, lets see some pictures from the "garden" and then some other random stuff.
You remember those raspberries I decided to put in pots and see if they worked? Well...we actually got some raspberries this year! I'm very pleasantly surprised!
Here are a bunch of tomatoes that I picked! This was also last week, right now they are a deeper awesome red! They look so good! I wish I knew what to do with them! I think I'm going to try a recipe for salsa for one, and then maybe spaghetti sauce? Or Pizza sauce? I don't know about those though! I've never made any of this! Anyone know of some good recipes?
Here is a picture of the front yard (across the street). I wanted to get pics with the hay bales in it before they removed them, and they did later that day, so I'm really happy I did that when I did! So pretty!! This is what I look at all day while I'm working! :)
We had a bunch of flies and fruit flies around the house, so I made this for the flies outside by the brooder (now there is probably 20 dead flies in it). I put it out there last week and its been doing a pretty good job of keeping them down! I forget, but I think there's sugar, vinegar and water in there...
We haven't really been giving them anything other than feed, except I put a cucumber out there that they weren't too interested in. I had some apples that were going bad and I thought I would see what the chickens thought of them. They were all over them, they had them eaten up in no time! That made me really happy!
Oh! And we took a little video of moving the coop with hubby's riding lawn mower! Check it out! Its pretty neat!
And, last but not least, in an effort to get in some socialization, I started a beginner acrylic painting class. Its only a 6 week class, but so far I think its helping, and its kinda fun too! I'm not sure painting is for me, but its worth a try! This week (tomorrow) we get to bring in something that interests us to start painting, I might bring in a picture of one of my chickens! :) Here is a picture of my first work of art! (haha)
All right...I better get to work!
