I've been meaning to post this pic of the horse stall that hubby converted into a hen house. The only thing left to do is make some bahama-style shutters that can be lowered on cold winter nights. Thankfully, that's a project that can wait for the fall!
Hubby mowed near some high grass and exposed a small nest of baby rabbits. One was so petrified that it didn't run, so hubby scooped it up to show the kids. I hope its mother doesn't mind that it was returned smelling like a people house, but hey, if it was so slow that it allowed hubby to pick it up, then it probably wouldn't have survived the hawks very long anyway.
We had a great time gorging ourselves on fresh, local organic strawberries courtesy of a neighboring farm. The baby would holler every time she realized it was time for another! Even the chickens enjoyed their fresh carrot and strawberry tops.
