I think I heard that we set a record this week for high temperature..it got up to, like, 99 degrees!
The garden seems to be doing well--Rich has been watering every night to cool off the little plants that are now growing at an amazing rate! With this sun, everything has really shot up.
The chickens are getting bigger and bigger every day. Their behavior has changed as they have gotten older, and now they are getting really crazy. When I open the door to go in and check on them, they fly all around, seem to have little stand-offs and confrontations with each other, and generally act nervous... is this normal? I have tried giving them "treats"--kitchen scraps like carrot peelings, cilantro, and even dandelions...but they don't seem interested in anything but their food. Rich is hoping to finish the coop soon so that we can move them outside next week.
