Oh, Happy Day!
After running some errands today, we spent some time in the garden. The wife and son planted some artichokes, more strawberries, another round of carrots, bush beans, and some more lettuce and spinach.
While they did that, I hung a few trellises for this year's round of hops...
...and built a support for the peas. Last year's was much too small. The wife also planted flower seeds around the yard (we'll have to get some pictures as they comes up).
Once the work was done, we decided to sit down and let the chickens out of their pen for a bit. They enjoyed what I can only imagine was pure chicken bliss scratching around the fir cone shells the squirrels have been littering at the base of a tree for the past several months.
