Anyone else see the fabulous red full moon tonight?! Good weather forecast for rest of the week. Am I the only one sowing/planting? Where are you all?
Don't read if you are apt to fainting at gross stuff!
Decided to do full hen house clean out today, so let the girls out. They were having a dust bath and so I started brushing and emptying their poop/bedding. I proceeded to scrub with ***** Fluid when Eloise came back wings flapping and running like a headless chicken...pursued by Sage who wanted a piece of what Elly had...a tiny toad - eugh gross or what?!
She kept thrashing it and throwing it around and then gobbled it up - DISGUSTING!

Got sunburnt again and pleased to see more on their allotments today.
More root crops tomorrow.
