It’s the first day of winter – the shortest day of the year and I weeded my garden today. Temps in the 40’s makes me feel a bit silly for moving the portable banty coop onto the deck to keep these miniature chickens out of the snow.  Is it a redneck moment to have chickens on your porch?

The weather man says the verdict is still out on a white Christmas. For today I’ll enjoy a bit  more puttering in the yard.
