In September we decided to plant some seeds. We knew it was still the rainy season but we wanted the seeds to be plants when the warm weather got here. The seeds sprouted really fast.
We usually had a garden every year. Although sometimes the chickens would dig it up and eat it.
I like working in the garden. I also like picking the vegetables when they are ready. I don't really like to eat a lot of vegetables but I think its neat to watch them grow.
The other day we were working in the garden. I was watering the garden and pulling out weeds. We had been working on a new garden box and there were was already grass growing in it. I remembered that our chickens used to eat our gardens so I thought it might be a good plan to put chickens in our empty garden box to do the weeding for us. I had to put the dog in the house before we let the chickens out, because she really likes to watch the chickens. I think maybe she would eat them.
The vegetables are getting really big now that the sun is out more often. The days have been really nice for a while now. I'm really glad the rainy season is over.
We went up to the pasture today to check on the tadpoles and the blackberries. The tadpoles are still tadpoles! I wanted to climb the tree for a birds eye view. But I didnt have to. I could they all still had tails not legs. I guess maybe those that grew legs could have already hopped away. But maybe they're just hiding.
The blackberries are just now starting to get ripe. The bulls were very curious why we were up in the fields by the pasture. They were very friendly.
We made a dessert out of the berries we picked today. I think in about three weeks they will be perfect.
I found another strange leaf up near the pasture today. Can you see what it really is?
