There's one thing I don't want to tell the little chickens. It's that the swiss chard is failing. It's bolting. Like crazy. And their favorite treat is going to go away in a few days... maybe a few weeks. They go crazy for the stuff:
Aven is the white one.
The dark brown one is Aeris.
The gray one is Alianna.
The bigger brown one is Alexa.
Yes, Devin named them after characters in his Fantasy novels.
Anyway, nothing much exciting going on around here. I've been down after surgery, hanging out with the kitties and trying to love my life. My very sweet mother-in-law came down to take care of me after surgery when Devin had to leave for work. I appreciate it more than she'll ever understand, and love love love her for helping me out on such short notice.
I have been moving around pretty good the last few days, but still battle with dizzy spells. In between those spells, I got to plant a few things... Alabama Black Butter Beans, Succotash Beans, and Chinese Red Noodle Beans as well as a couple of varieties of summer squash.
Other than that, Devin put a set of shelves in the pantry. I'm excited about it because that means that I can actually can some more stuff now. I have room to put stuff that I've canned! So, I'll be finishing off at least the 65 cans I have left to reach my goal this year pretty soon I hope.
