When we brought our chicks home, I thought at first Penelope (Australorp) would be the chicken in charge because she seemed a little bossy. But it was Daisy (another Australorp) who was leading the flock by the time we were ready to move them from brooder to coop. I’d say Daisy takes her job very seriously and holds the leadership role with little challenge. Every now and then one of the Barred Rocks will [Read more…] about Chicken Chores, by Daisy and Tracy
I have so many photos to post… I asked myself, do I add several small blogs to Garden, Cook, Eat, Repeat! or do I put up one big one and give ya all I’ve got?
We’re going to go with one big one. 🙂 I hope you like the photos. Most were taken with my Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Camera. A couple are from the iPhone, of course.

It’s time for an update on the 2020 gardens. I’ve added some chicken pics, too. 🙂
So… we changed our garden plans we made back in January. As you might know, we [Read more…] about Leaving May, Entering June (Story, Photos, Video)

While they are “cold hardy” breeds – 4 Australorps (black ones in the video) and 4 Plymouth Barred Rocks (white and black checks) – they were too little to be in the cold right off of the bat.

Erm, baby it’s cold outside…?
Okay, May 9th, upstate NY, and yeah, it’s snowing. Gotta love it. 😉
This is putting a cramp on the coop building today. It’s pretty cold – mostly it’s that dang wind. Because of the wind, we decided to forego finishing the outside of the roof today. Maybe tomorrow we can get to that.
In the meantime, [Read more…] about Update on Coop & It’s Snowing in May!
