Here is the reason that I haven't blogged in what seems like forever. He is adorable, isnt he?! Well, I should probably change the title of the blog from adventures in our backyard to adventures in life because the focus has certainly left the backyard and is more in the crib inside the house. However, as much as we are enjoying being parents, we still talk about what we want to do in the backyard this spring and summer.
First off, we need to get a few more chickens. I say a few, Bill says many. We actually have "lost" two chickens over the course of the winter. One was a month or so ago and once was just recently. There were chicken feathers all over our yard the other morning and we haven't had 5 chickens since then.
Bill would also like to add ducks and geese to the collection in the back. I, however, am completely against this. It just seems like more work than we need right now. We have a hard enough time keeping up with the chickens lately that I would feel bad adding more the plate. If you ask Bill as to why he wants ducks and geese please be prepared for a long conversation, though interesting, it will be long...
Also, we are talking about the garden again. Our garden failed miserably, mostly due to the fact that I couldnt do a thing last summer with my morning sickness. This summer I plan it to be a lot different. I hope Liam likes hanging out in the dirt with his mom. We decided we need to do some raised beds and move the garden to a different area of the yard in order to get enough sun light. Hopefully this will solve some of the issues we had last summer. I cant wait to grow my yellow pear tomatoes. We coudnt get the seeds last year as every place we checked was out of them. Bill surprised me a few weeks ago with that glorious little yellow packet containing my favorite kind of tomato. I really hope it all turns out!
That is all for now! lots of love and many blessings!
