Sassy Sunday 4/22/12

Sassy Sunday 4/22/12

Hello World!  Sassy here.  I’ve got a lot to catch you up on, so let’s get to it.  
The chickens are growing like crazy.  Here are some pics to show you how they’ve changed.
This is March 17 2012

Here they are April 3, 2012 and April 8, 2012.
They look like real live chickens now.  We should have eggs by the end of August or early September.  I wonder if I'll get any?
We've been working on the garden.  Barb has been harvesting the radishes already.  She gives some to me and to Chili.  Ginger won't eat them.  She thinks we are crazy.

We've planted potatoes, tomatoes, onions, squash, and some peas.  We also planted some apple trees and peach trees, some asparagus, some rubarb, and some Jerusalem artichokes.  We have a little more room in the garden, but I don't know if Barb will be putting anything else out. :)  This picture is from a few weeks ago.  But it gives you a good idea of our garden.  Plus you can see both me and a rainbow in the picture.
 We ran a turtle hospital here for a week.  Barb and the kids saw this poor little guy get hit by a car.  The car got him on the edge of his shell and sent him flying into the air.  Barb stopped and picked him up.  He's a red-eared slider.  An aquatic turtle.  The vet kindly looked him over and said his injuries weren't life threatening.  She was nice enough to give him a shot of antibiotics.  (She's the one who takes care of our gecko, Mamba)  We brought him home and kept him gooped up with antibiotic cream until he stopped bleeding.  Then we let him go in the pond near our house.  

I'll leave you a couple of pictures - evidence that the cat, who sleeps with Barb every night, sleeps around with the other females in the house.

Have a great week!

I came back to see the photos! Thank you so much!
Those baby chicks were so cute and now they are growing so fast.
I think your rainbow is so pretty.
My moms are making a garden too-- at least thinking about it.
Is the turtle happy now? He is swimming right?
