My "baby" is now my right-hand man since my eldest is usually off working.  I am so thankful that he was willing to be my helper because many of these chores require two sets of hands.

He turned the ground while I photographed Garden #1.  The dried beans are either pulled or still on the vine drying.  There are still 2 rows of broccoli and some voluntary tomato plants.  Pineapple to the right.  Those are still yearlings. I doubt they will produce this spring.

So, I left the gate open and purposely allowed my girls to roam the empty lot to look for bugs.

They were having a great time and exploring.

But then, they kept getting further and further... closer to the street.  It probably freaks the neighbors and passing cars to see chickens loose. I am not worried because they come as soon as I call.

Like I showed earlier, Garden #2 is now officially ready for the manure dump in a couple weeks.  I am allowing time for the voluntary tomato seedlings to show themselves first.

Happy Spring,... Winter.
