..well the first step out of our house is a real doozie..and it takes the form of a chair with 2 boards. We are watching ChunJae (our friends dog (if you speak Korean figure the name out)) and she is a little skittish at times..and around our ‘step’ she is VERY skittish…she won’t even come within 20ft of the front door after she has been put out to pee..nothing says fun like carrying a dog inside because they are too scared..
..and the perennials are doing great..this is the 2nd year for some of the plants like echinacea and it is really starting to fill in the area we designated for it..everything is actually doing very well..except for the hostas as the chickens love to eat it..
..and we had some extra squash started with no room for it in the garden so I planted it in last years manure pile..and it has responded!…the 2 of them are taking over the area..I swear it grew 5 feet longer in a week.
Loki and ChunJae seem to be finding their stride again..3 fights in the first half and hour she was here but after 2 days they are playing nice..and much to my chagrin they LOVE to get up on the topsoil pile to wrestle..the last place I want them to play. I chased them off the pile about 15 times today…why can’t they just play in the grassy area!?!..oh yeah, there is no grassy area…carry on.
..and it looks like I need to put even more water outside..after being outside for an hour we all came inside and the dogs appear to be thirsty..usually they take turns..
