Beautiful Fall Sunday
This weather is beautiful. The sun was out, a little breeze occasionally and the trees are starting to turn colors. This morning Ron and I cut up all the veggies I am going to use to make vegetable soup mix tomorrow. Thank goodness for my KitchenAid and the attachments; they made the job of cutting some of the stuff easy. We then went into town to deliver some eggs, a quick trip to the store and then back home. I went out back and planted my garlic and then let the chickens out to roam the yard. Ron and I sat out and watched them while they roamed around. Why is it that the 2 places, garlic bed and pea bed, I didn't want them in they insisted going? After a few times getting them out they went about eating grass and scratching around to find some goodies. They got to stay out for a couple hours and then the fun began. Close your eyes and picture this; Ron standing at the gate to the chicken yard with a hoe in his hand and me chasing the chickens with a long pole trying to get them to go back in their yard. After several minutes, well maybe more than several minutes I was successful in getting them back in and locked up. I don't know about them but I was tired after the chase.
