Those brief little pockets of sunshine during these short and cold Winter days can be just what is needed. A wander around the garden, a weed pulled here and there with a small dose of vitamin d, can be quite therapeutic. While lady beetle collecting and a kick around of the soccer ball kept the younger ones happy, we talked about our plans for the place. A large vegie garden for the front, perfect for those sprawling pumpkins and zucchini. A few rows of berries beside it. A few more (vegie and rose) beds ready to be filled with dirt. And then there is the chicken coop. The one that we have planned for so long, but were so worried about getting it right that nothing as yet had been decided. But as we sat on the decided space (for the chickens) on the weekend, talking soon became something a little more definite. Some poking around the shed revealed a heap of suitable materials that had been salvaged here and there. Before the end of that day we had our basic chicken frame up. Photos to come soon - I promise!
