I had to go see the resident guinea pigs and this one voiced her opinion at my lack of treats.
|"Sure, you bring her something but do you think of us??? NOOOOOOO!!!|
Rosanne got them a carrot so they played tug-a-war until the caramel colored pig won the prize, I thought they were going to fight to the death.
It was a beautiful day so we went outside, I had never seen the chicken coop that Rosanne labored over all fall, it's really cute and it works well.
She can retrieve her eggs from the outside.
I was anxious to see the greenhouse, it smelled so good! Here Rosanne is checking on some baby plants just sprouting. I ate fresh peas right off the plant and swooned.
As soon as she opened the door, here come the hens, they love to come in and prune the plants and leave a little fertilizer in the bed. Things they spurned last fall with all the green stuff around to eat, they now gobble down with gusto.
But all good things must come to an end, otherwise there would be nothing growing in the greenhouse, and out comes the dreaded broom.
|"OK Girls, time to go back outside."|
The hens know the drill and reluctantly head for the door, any lagers get a prod with the broom.
Outside by the porch are the signs I made Rosanne for Christmas, just in case you want to take a trip.
They have a beautiful view out their door.
Rosanne is calling her hen, Bawl Baby Betsy to come and share the sprouted sunflower seeds treats.
Four hens and two dogs begging.
I came with seeds, chicken and noodles, danish rolls that were burnt on the bottom, sorry, some peach leather and a small portable greenhouse from our friend, Kim.
I went home with a blooming plant, a bag of chicken scratch, sprouted sunflower seeds for my own girls and some aluminum pans. We forgot the letter punch set so I could take it back to Kim, SORRY!
All in all it was a fair trade, wouldn't you say?
