Am going to have a much reduced growing area this year, and everything but garlic and raspberries will be in pots or raised beds (made of old friges, bathtubs, etc.) in part because Dad said so and mostly because I was not the world's best gardener even before my entirely too recent heart attack. I'd just got my new chicks, too! Lost one while I was in the hospital. The rest are being happily noisy since midnight is snack time. And I have 2 little ducks this year too. The city sent out a poll thing -residents voted to allow poultry. City officials still dragging on particulars, but the will of the people is in force. I'm not the only one with birds. There's even a couple people with pigs!
