les poulets sont arrivés!

I got my chicks! Here they are inspecting the wall of their new home for the next 6 weeks.

Left to right they are:
Rhode Island Red
Black Australorp
Barred Rock

They spend most of their time, eating, sleeping and chirping contentedly.

More chix pics soon.

I know it's too soon, but...

...I just can't help myself.

I started seeds. Yes some even outdoors. I know we have much rain and cold weather ahead, but the forecast for the next few days is dry, maybe even some sun.

I planted spinach, which should do fine, and some rapini, which I am very excited about adding to the mix this year. I planted some seeds in one of the unsheltered beds in the front yard and some of them in small pots under the cold frames. Let the best seed win.

I also started some cilantro inside on a sunny windowsill.
