Plants, Trees and Vines

Good Morning.  Finally, we have sun shining today and so far no wind.  Some of my plants that I ordered online arrived yesterday.  They tell you to plant them as soon as you can, but we won't be able to get them in the ground until this weekend.  Most of the plants actually look like they are going to do just fine, but some of the vines I ordered I am a bit skeptical.  They literally sent me sticks.  They have a one year guarantee, so at least if they don't grow I can get my money back.  I will have to post a picture of the before and after of theses vines in about 6 weeks. 

My chickens are doing great.  We actually got a half a dozen eggs the other day.  It is pretty fantastic to eat your own eggs from your own chickens.  My husband and I were just talking last night about how neat it is to raise and grow our own food.  It is so fulfilling and nice to know where your food is coming from.  My family teases us because we buy almost all organic food.  But, once you learn what is in the "regular" food it doesn't take long to convert.  I have two young boys to take care of and putting food in their little bodies that is free of pesticides and preservatives is vital to their health. 

This morning me and my boys are going to buy some trees.  This weekend (weather permitting) we are getting our big ugly tree cut down and I want shade locust trees to put in its place.  Have a good day everyone. Bye.
