Welcome to the family!

I just flew in from State College/New York and today was a blissful Austin day. Ok, it is crazy humid, no joke. But we got to do fun Austin outside wonderful things! We've been discussing getting chicks and today was the day. Zachary named them Petunia, Gaga, and Bessie. They're living in our back bathroom until their feathers fill out enough to go outside....

In case you track such things (you don't, but maybe this will make you google it), Bessie is a Black Australorp, Gaga is a Buff Orpington, and Petunia is a Dominique. We're building a portable home for them over the next few weeks. Fun for all!

We also just got lucky and got a community garden plot right across the parking lot from Zachary's daycare. Today we stirred up the dirt, and tomorrow we're going to go have a planting extravaganza of all the things that love heat... We'll let you know how that goes.. .I figure it is easy-ish to stop by on the way home and check things, give everything a drink for the evening, and take advantage of some raised beds we didn't have to make....

More from the farm later. We have New York pictures but they'll be a day or so. I mean, you guys were all there anyways.. :D
