Last year we had our garden in our backyard and as much fun as I had there wasn’t enough room for everything I wanted to grow this year. We have always kept the front garden bed full of flowers because we want to keep the front of our property looking nice and I’ve been afraid of neighborhood animals eating the crops. We live near a wildlife ravine and I’ve seen wild rabbits around our neighborhood. To grow everything I want to this year I decided to dig up our front garden bed and start over. I still want our garden bed to look nice so I’m planting my own garden art.
Spring is in the air and it’s the perfect time for starting a flock of chickens. I wasn’t originally planning on adding to our flock this year, but we lost a few ladies this Winter so we’ll be adding a few new baby chicks. If you’ve never owned chickens before Spring is the perfect time. Co-op’s and farms are full of baby chicks with the biggest selection of breeds available in March and April.
