Spring brings growth. Even with all of the rain and dark days we receive in PDX, life still grows. My newly planted garden is growing literally in front of my eyes. I look at the seedlings one minute and the next they are an inch taller. This also applies to my chicks. Newly grown feathers are changing my babies into akward teenagers with large feet and clumbsy movements. It's amazing how quickly a baby chick can grow! Ruby, Daisy and Georgia are eating 3 times the amount that they were a little over a week ago and producing 3 times as much waste! I look forward to the day when they are young chickens roaming around the yard trying to sneak snacks of plants that I just put into the ground. This summer will be fun.
