Summer is here!

After all this weird weather, hot/cold, wet/dry (really just extended New England spring) I have proof that it's now officially summer:

Mmmm! Out for a walk this evening I discovered a whole hillside full of wild strawberries!
The peas have started climbing:

And all else seems very well in the garden.
The chickens are huge! Here is the latest group shot...posing for a photo was decidedly not in their immediate interest because they were busying themselves with the vegetable cuttings which had just been tossed in. Lots of happy clucking sounds. The lighter colored one at center stage is dubbed "French Vanilla" and is likely a rooster.

We also seem to be having a major frog problem around here....

A belated birthday present courtesy of Mom...I had seen them for kids, but never in a size 10. Thanks Mom!
Finally, thank you all for your kind words about Haylie.

I have alpine strawberries in my yard too. Very yummy.

You garden is coming along nicely, so are your chickens.
