This is meant to document our trials and tribulations while transforming our .19 acres of land in suburban Oklahoma in to something more sustainable.

Spring is here! We have our baby chicks. They actually arrived on the first day of Spring.
From left to right we have Stella Luna (Barred Rock), Bacon (Rhode Island Red), Bunny (Easter Egger), Winnie Cooper (Golden Laced Wyandotte). Winne is clearly the leader, and Stella is a little slow. It is really neat to get to know their personalities and see them grow and change each day.
What are we supposed to do with this thing?
We are so excited about all the flowers, and potential strawberries. Hopefully the birds won't get them all.
Weirdly, the apricots have already set fruit. And the pears aren't far behind. We really hope to get some nectarines and apples this year too.
We finished the keyhole bed at my parents' place last weekend and planted it with herbs. Hopefully all the seeds didn't get washed away in the deluge of rain we had earlier this week.
