Well I guess taking the plants out to the garden late is better than never. Tomatoes, peppers, sunflowers, herbs, a pumpkin and watermelon plant have been waiting on the windowsill and finally went into the raised beds outside.
I don't know if we will get another hail storm. One tomato plant that was outside survived the hail, battered but growing new leaves. It is always a toss up whether tomatoes will survive the season anyhow. Eventually we will make a greenhouse or something to protect them.
I don't know if we will plant much else beyond the raised planter boxes, seems late to even start.
We went to town and that darned Feeder's Supply gets in so many interesting breeds of chicks that I had to get a Silver Spangled Hamburg. Hopefully she will lay white eggs for us along with the Campine and Lakenvelder.
The last round of chicks are outside. They aren't quite ready to lay but they are all feathered out. The silver campine and golden lakenvelder are hens. The little araucana is a roo and going to live with a friend's flock.
The jury is still out on the silver laced bantam cochin but we didn't want that one to be lonely so picked a couple of golden laced bantam cochins.
They are friendly and doing well, active little chickees. Hopefully they are pullets.
