|The plum tree|
Unfortunately, the vixen has found a way into the chicks' old enclosure, so we've had more chicken losses. Luckily, 5 out of the 8 chicks we recently hatched have made it, and we've created a new enclosure using Carabiner hooks, which have seemed to work in the past. Hopefully this one will be fox-proof.
Meanwhile, the purple hull peas are still producing like crazy! Also, the chicken tractor is progressing slowly but surely. Soon, we should have a mobile chicken command center.
Next week, we plan on starting a monthly volunteer program where youth help us with maintenance.. They will be helping us keep up the garden in Tristan's absence. We encourage all readers to join in!
