After taking its own sweet time in arriving, summer finally made it. Right now at 2 p.m., the temperature in the shade is 77 degrees. On the south side of the house in the bright sun, we have 88. Best of all, we've got a lovely breeze so even though we aren't used to such weather yet this year, we're staying comfortable while working outside.
Still work to be done in the raspberries and blueberries. (WHERE are all these weeds coming from?) Papa Pea is working on getting the chicks installed in their little temporary house complete with chicken tractor. They've been eating everything in sight and just got too big for their brooder in the garage. Besides creating chicken dust and a rather unpleasant chicken smell in there.
Gotta get back outside and take advantage of this beautiful day. Now let's hope the summer time temperatures stay with us for a while. Like into September!
