Weekend update

Chickens The biggest news is with the chickens – they are finally outside in their pen!!! [http://www.flickr.com/photos/36013428@N08/3643098361/] It has been a real killer trying to get the pen finished. Had to cut the roofing

The garden is finally planted

I have neglected to post pictures of the tomatoes with all the talk of chickens and wine, so let’s just say that they grew a lot. Mostly up, unfortunately. I know for next year that proper lighting [http://newlyplanted.

One (large) step backwards

Something has happened to half of my tomato plants. Not sure what, yet, but it doesn’t look good. [http://www.flickr.com/photos/36013428@N08/3532484510/] Decided to trim off all the sickly looking leaves; there were  a lot

Where there’s life, there’s hope

After the transplant, quite a few of the seedlings looked like they probably wouldn’t make it. With the right conditions, though, they’ve recovered. A good lesson for life as well as plants :) [http://lh5.ggpht.com/_7d1H3pSFIWw/SfGu9lKtmRI/

Just for reference

This is closer to what my tomato plants should look like at this point. Got some plants from the gardeners I’m learning from :) [http://www.flickr.com/photos/36013428@N08/3456811132/]

The survivors

Rule #1 for seeds: Use proper soil. [http://www.flickr.com/photos/36013428@N08/3455990592/] The wrong kind of soil makes it impossible for water to penetrate to the roots. Add that to peat pots being naturally prone to disintegration
