To Do

  1. Clean chicken house. check.
  2. Weed and prepare 3 rows for fall veggies. check.
  3. Allow the Monkey to wear her pink princess dress, tights and black patent leather shoes (on the wrong feet) to avoid time-consuming and illogical argument with three year old. check.
  4. Make tomato sauce and can. will have to wait until tonight.

I also managed to order seeds for the fall garden.

Piedmont Corn Salad
Rembrandt Spinach
Provencal Mesclun Mix
Winterbor Kale
Rouge d'Hiver Lettuce
Round Black Spanish Radish
China Rose Radish

I hope they arrive soon. I am covered in mud and indescribable chicken ick, so I think I shall go freshen up a bit.

    Awesome Blog! I added you to my bookmarks. Feel free to check out my Playstation 3 Blog anytime!

  2. I am not as exciting as your first commenter today, but I am all envious at your list of fall seeds. Can you fertilize your garden with the chicken poop?

  3. But is it Astro arugula? ;-)

  4. laura - yes, I can fertilize with chicken poop. It just has to age awhile before I can use it - like a fine wine...

    jamie - I just don't know... Maybe I should call Baker Creek Seeds and if not I should just cancel that order :) I'm going to have to look for it for the spring.

    anon - I'm just not sure how I should reply to that...
