Weed and Feed

I love these afternoons when I finish work early enough to putter in the garden before dinner. This afternoon I did some weeding and deadheading and just enjoyed being outdoors – ducks looking on from their garden plot.

Weed and feed at my house has a different meaning than using Scott’s products. I kill my weeds by hand. Clearly, I’m not very good at weeding because there always seem to be more the next day. Although, “more weeds” is not really a bad thing – especially when it comes to the Colonel and The Girls. So now you know what I mean when I say I’m off to weed and feed!

  1. Our winter was rough but yours was worse. I don’t have as many critters as you do. I miss my hens and 3 generals and chuckled when you posted your colonel.
    What are your hens the yellow ones, what breed. love your site and your crafts. Happy Easter

      Dorothy, the yellow hens are buff orpingtons. I have found them to be the sweetest, most mild mannered of all the girls we’ve had so far!
