This week we have seen a lot of this…

gray and steamy, thunder, lightening and today steady cooler rain.

These guys are being fattened up for next week’s trip to freezer camp…

which also means bringing out the brooder and getting set up for the next round of meat chicks due later in the summer…

The rain and warmth are responsible for the lush growth in the flower beds and the garden…

including the rapid growth of weeds that will require another couple of intense days removing them and another too soon mowing.

Hoping that we will soon be able to refill the near barren pantry shelves and empty freezer…

The produce so far has been garlic scapes, a couple of jalapenos and some greens.  The pullets are now nearly 16 weeks old and we are hoping for eggs soon.

The wet weather has given time for some spinning and knitting, socializing with the Clicks and Sticks Knitting night group last night and the Spunsters spinning group today.
