Starting the Garden

We are getting a later start on our garden than we wanted.  We have been looking for a tiller and just today found one.  So Doug got busy tilling.  We want to get the tomatoes and peppers that I bought in the ground.  So he's just tilling enough of an area for that right now.  It's suppose to rain all week and it would be nice to have them in the ground getting established.

 Right now the chickens have the run of the place.  We will be planting from the trees to the chain link fence and back to where the green plant is in the back.  That's my rhubarb.  I had to fence it in because the chickens were eating the leaves.  They are really loving the newly scratched dirt.

The chick on the right is one of our new purchases.  She's about 3 weeks old.  We got her and two others.  They seem to be adjusting well with the older hens.
