The lettuce and the chickens are both ready to be moved outside. We moved the chickens yesterday and I’ll post about that later on today. The weather has kept the soil too wet to prepare however, so the lettuce will stay in the flat for the time being.
Here is the lettuce – a romaine-type variety called Little Gems.
This is a different flat of lettuce that was planted on the same day as the Little Gems, April 2. This variety is a red oak leaf type called Brunia and is one of our favorites.
Here are the birds. They are at a not very attractive stage between cute fluffy chicks and fully feathered chickens. I’m not sure if they will live long enough to fully feather out and look like a regular chicken.
