June 16

It is not quite clear enough how large the cornish X chicks are compared to the aracana but the differences is amazing and they are always hungry. Someone half criticized why I would buy this breed since it is the breed of big business but honestly with 3 children and no extra help 6 to 8 weeks is enough time with these chicks before harvest. I am interested to see if I feel a weight lifted when the work is done.
Keeping the weeds from over taking the garden is a daily job, but the pulling is worth it and the girls enjoy their time harvesting.

E my 3 year old sowed the seed for these California Poppies along with other flowers which cut well and look lovely around the house.
