The chicks are about 7 weeks old and looking more and more like miniature chickens these days. They’re finally ready to come out of the coop and explore the outdoors. Although it will be a while before they’re free-ranging in the pasture, these little guys have plenty of room inside the safety of the aviary for now. Today was the […]
I love asparagus, not just because it’s delicious and has lots of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. I love it, because it’s perennial. No matter how long and cold the winter has been, that dutiful spring vegetable is one of the first signs of life in my kitchen garden every year. And, is it ever welcome! However, I must admit that […]

I think I’ve mentioned that the Cotswolds area of England is one of my favorite places. Last July, my husband and I were on our way back to a cottage we were renting in the village of Bledington. We had just finished dinner at a fantastic restaurant/pub called the Wild Rabbit in Kingham and were driving through the countryside, when […]
The chicks are a month old now and scampering about like crazy. Instead of the tiny fluff balls they were just a few short weeks ago, they are beginning to resemble small chickens. With their increase in size and activity, it was time to move these little guys to their permanent residence–the chicken coop. So, after scrubbing it down […]
