IMG_0640Easter weekend was a busy one; as was the whole week, actually. Because we were getting ready for our Family Easter Gathering, not too much was accomplished. Sue did continue her work, in earnest, on the new chicken tractor. She had the frame completed by Friday evening, she had fetch and hold help from mom and Aunt Carolyn. Tonight she worked until dusk getting the door attached, cutting the wire and stapling it to the frame. It’ll be done in no time. She’s working so diligently on it because the teens really need to get out and stretch their legs and eat some grass and bugs, but we can’t let them out in the regular chicken run yet because they just fit right through the holes in the fence. We do let them out, but only under supervision. With the chicken tractor, they can be outside all day, and still go in at night if need be. 

Saturday morning was the P.O.W.W.O.W. and we had fun working until about 10:15.  Being the Saturday before Easter, it seemed that fewer people wanted to come out.  I thought it was great! We ended up with a crate of cucumbers, a crate of butternut squash, a beautiful watermelon, and some quite ripe on the vine tomatoes.  Added to our Easter meal quite nicely!

Our Sunday visitors enjoyed a dinner on the porch, some pretty good food, and great fellowship – not to mention the entertainment of the chickens, ducks and a goose! Everyone who wanted to went on a field trip to visit the little flocks. I think it was a fun time for them. It turned out to be a beautiful day, with just a light wind in the afternoon/evening time.

For the life of me, I can’t think of anything else to add to this post, except to express my hope that you passed a wonderful Easter. I’ll try to have something more later this week, until then, as always~
Thanks for reading!
