Chicks

100_5570

Our baby chicks are now 3  weeks old.  It kinda amazes me we have only had them 2 weeks.  Seems much longer somehow.  The red ones are a week older than the white ones but for simplicity’s sake we put them all at the same age.   

We had some rain last night, with wind (of course)  and it is still overcast today.  I am hoping for some sun but we’ll see.  Temperature is nice though, 56 degrees.  I was hoping to get some of the earlier veggies planted in the garden but it is too wet.  Maybe I am just getting in too much of a hurry.   Several years ago, when we first moved to Floyd, we had to replant all our garden.  About the last week of May, temperatures dropped to the teens for 5 nights in a row.  Everything froze, even through our buckets that we had used to cover our plants.  The seed potatoes froze in the ground.  So needless to say after that I try to not plant too early.  However, I can plant peas, lettuce, onions and cabbage now (as soon as the garden dries up enough). 

Well, time for school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. Your chicks are growing. I can’t believe how fast they do grow. We have ups and downs with the weather as well. We had to replant beans last year.

    Have a great evening with your family.
