Where do the days go? We started on Saturday morning, leaving our house and heading to the Compound around 7am. I spent the morning and better part of the afternoon tending the garden; weeding, planting potatoes, carrots, beats, sunflowers and a flower bed. It seemed to take forever as the ground was still saturated from the rains this past week (we got somewhere between 2 and 3 inches)and digging the trenches was a heavy, muddy mess. The Moose spent his time picking up brush, which had fallen everywhere, pulling up pickers since Round Up wouldn't touch them, and burning our brush piles.
We spent the remainder of the day, 6pm, offloading some materials for the chicken coop addition, and starting on the floor. Once the coop is finished it'll be more than large enough for the 12 chicks we're raising at this point on our patio. We think we'll lose one of them, as she's suffered with an impacted crop, stopped growing and doesn't eat very much. We've babied her with yogurt, olive oil, sugar water and massaging her crop. No improvements yet in her behavior, but we're still hopeful. We don't want to lose any of them, and Sweetie Pie is very cute.
Have a good week!
