We had the pleasure of keeping chickens for the past five years. Over those years, I’ve learned a good deal about their overall care, needs, and simple ways to make it easier to care for them. Over the past couple of weeks, I have been busy landscaping around the new coop and run and adding…

Plant containers full of edibles. This container is filled with lettuce, pansies and sugar snap peas. One of my favorite things in the world is watching my chickens explore their surroundings when they are out during supervised free-ranging.

Even though we had a bit of snow last night, I have been very busy puttering around the yard with spring clean up and getting ready for the photo shoot with the book. My favorite spring flowers are pansies. They are so lovely, especially the ruffled variety in this pansy sphere on my front steps.…

We have had so much rain over the past week that I was beginning to believe that we would never see the sun again.  Yet, yesterday it was beautiful, sunny and not a cloud was in the sky.  Despite the rain, spring is my absolute favorite season.  The spring blooms are just making the yard…

As…
