Finally Friday

My Yukon Gold seed potatoes came in the mail today.
The sweet potatoes should be here any time now.

More chicks today also.
I swear This might be the last of them.
These are the meat chicks.
Speckled Sussex and White Rock cockerels.

I was happy to see they had marked the males.
I really don't need any more laying hens.

The lilacs are blooming.
I love how they smell
and how they wall of the backyard from the
next door neighbors (in town).

Tess wants to know when we are going to the farm.

Not tonight Tess.
We have to babysit.

This little girl is 5 years old
and smarter than I have ever been or ever will be.
She intimidates me.

Looks like Tess is dreaming of the farm.

Once again, I am welcoming the weekend with open arms.
Can't wait to get out there and get tired, dirty and hungry.
Bring it on  : )

More baby peeps. Love it!! The more the merrier. I want more too. I think we might hold off on the ducks for a bit and go for more chickens.
I love lilacs too.
Have fun this weekend!

We have never grown potatoes. When you buy a bag like that, are they organic? Can you grow them without sprays?
