June Garden Update

We have had a lot of rain and cooler nights most of this month.  The garden has been a little slower this year. 

We have been enjoying a lot of salads, the lettuce has loved the rain and cooler nights.  One of our favorite salads has been lettuce with fresh fruit and Poppy Seed dressing.

Poppy Seed Dressing

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons vinegar
1/4 cup milk
2 Teaspoons poppy seeds 

Whisk all of the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth.
Store in the refrigerator.

Backyard Chicks

The day has finally arrived, I picked up my four little chickens from the local coop in town.
I have waited a long time to be able to have chickens again.  Now the long wait for them to grow enough to start laying some eggs.  

Right now they are to little to go out into the little chicken coop we have...so they are spending their time in a tub in the corner of the kitchen.  I am already having so much fun watching them and holding them and also listening to them peep!

The count down has been over for a while now for the last day of school, I am enjoying being a full time homemaker again.
