Spring Chickens in Tennessee
Ever been to Tennessee in the spring? If not, it is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!
That is, as long as you miss the flooding.
We missed a 20 year high flood while out of town. Our garden was pounded, but our house is far enough from the creek and larger rivers to be safe (oh, and that photo is NOT our house). Horses were floating down the creeks and everyone said it was an exciting time (nobody was hurt though and all the cows & horses lived!).
Speaking of our garden……. I still have four things to plant: Squash, Pumpkins, Watermelons, & Beets. Even though it is high time to plant, we are late because of the enormous amounts of rain (and we should have planted before the rains started).
Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Pole Beans, & Marigolds made it in on time.
Here is our lettuce & spinach patch. This has been my absolute FAVORITE!
What about Kristen’s Chickens?
You’ve probably been wondering if they are out of the house. Well the answer is YES…. They ARE…. and we never even had to chase loose chickens in our living room.
Last but not least: the fruit trees. We will have a lovely year of blueberry picking and peach pies. Look at the start of these yummy fruits!
Next few days I’ll be writing about “Killdeers Harassing Me In My Driveway”. Weird huh?
