We achieved germination!
I'm feeling overly excited about the growth in the garden showing in only 7 days.
"The rooster may crow, but it's the hen that delivers the goods."
As you can see, our chicks and Silkie hen which I call "my prize chicken" (she hasn't won any prizes...yet) are enjoying their morning after their first night out in their coop. I'm feeling what empty nest syndome is like now that they are out of sight. I can't imagine when it is your own children. Let's pretend it isn't coming and move on to some new pictures.
There are pieces of slab to hold down the chicken wire which were also used as stepping stones between beds 1 and 2 in a previous post.
