My good friends Chris and Kenny are off and away on the road to improved self sufficiency. They’ve got a fearlessness that I don’t. They’ve got talents that I don’t. And now they’ve got chickens that I don’t.
I’m filled with some covetousness. I covet the chickens and their fleshy perfection, their perfect eggs. I covet too this very cool coop that’s coming together. You see, Chris can actually build things. I covet that talent. My wife covets it also on my behalf and for me.
So in addition to their chickens, they’re going to dive in and get a garden going. Kenny has been pulling away the sod and getting the soil ready. She and her daughter have a whole bunch of seeds started and they’re already soaking up sun in the windows. When all is said and done, they’ll have greens, a bit of corn, broccoli, squash, peas, tomatoes, eggplant, celery, carrots and melons. Naturally I can’t resist taking pictures!
Here’s the spot, here are the chickens, here’s the coop!
