Stop on by.... the Hummer Diner!

Wow! What a weekend! We had a huge sale at work and I pulled a 13 hour day yesterday! My poor feet are killing me! (I am commissioned sales person, selling furniture on a 10,000 square foot sales floor, yes, 10,000!) I do alot of walking everyday, but alot more yesterday! I missed my chicks. My strawberries are turning to mush. And Sugar thinks I am a stranger! But all that aside..... The chicks still love me! I would like you to meet Hilda (back center) and Stew (forward). They are 2 of my NH reds. Stew (short for chicken stew) is our only rooster of our 9 chicks--he hasn't figured out if living with 8 hens is good or bad. Hilda is my DIVA! She is soooo funny. When I go out to see them, Hilda will run up the ramp and down the perch and fly off the end. Of course, she is rewarded with much laughter and clapping, so she does it again. I really do enjoy the chickens. I can't believe they are only 2 months old!
The whole gang! The other NH red is Myrtle. We have a buff orpington named Curious George, she loves to freeze and stare at you, like she is trying to figure you out. The other 5 don't have names yet. The barred rocks are hard to tell apart. I haven't identified and distinct personality traits yet. But I am sure, before the summer is out they will all have names!
The Sunflowers
Corn, bush beans, tomatoes, gourds, spinach, broccoli, basil, asparagus all growing great! Aquaponics.... the basil is going gangbusters in this environment!
Strawberries coming on strong still! More jam on the way!

I hope everyone is doing well!
Blessings to all!


  1. Hi Christina! Thanks so much for visiting! :)

    You're right that we don't have to ignore what's going on in places like Iraq. The men and women who have been serving over there, cleaning up the messes left by abusive soldiers, rescuing citizens, helping with the children, and etc... Those are the people who definitely need to be given more attention...

  2. Wow - I just took a good look at your blog, and I have to say, it's great, Christina! Looks like you're into gardening on a large scale; you might be interested in visiting my friend Lacy at Razor Family Farms. She and her husband have really got it goin' on over there; she has all kinds of awesome stuff - recipes, etc - that you might find interesting. :)

  3. I love the tractor for your chicks, very nice. Aren't they just the cutest. We have a buff Brahma named disco chicken. She runs around like she's on the dance floor with John Travolta himself.
    Your garden looks good too. I guess I'm going to have to get off my duff and post some pictures of our stuff too!


Grab a cup of coffee and let me know your views, thoughts, or ideas.... Glad to see you here. Have a great day!
