The chickens have a fence now, which has made for a much more peaceful family life. (No chickens peeking in at us while we eat dinner; no worries about unattended dogs; no scratching around in the garlic bed). But on some afternoons we let the ladies out to free range and explore. They really are such friendly girls. As Amabel said today, "I don't know how we ever lived without our birds!"
Garden Notes: We planted 50 crowns of asparagus today.
