Lisa is a very funny girl, and she and I have become good friends. When I let her out of the run in the morning or after work, she follows me around the yard for a bit, just to see what I'm up to. She's a very curious chicken. She also loves Crocs, particularly my orange ones. She likes the bright color, and often stands there staring at them and wondering, "What are those tiny pink things I can see through the holes?" (Answer: my toes.)
And check out her nice big comb and wattles. Snazzy!
Speaking of tasty eats, I have some really nice veggies getting close to harvest, including eggplant, tomato, green beans and corn. I can't wait to try some beans straight from the vine. My dad and I grew them in our garden when I was a kid, and they were so delicious. It's been fun to watch the corn grow, too. I'm sure it reminds Dakota of home. (Okay, probably not.) But I bet the corn will be tasty when it's finally ready.
Annoyingly, my zucchini has only produced male flowers so far, but I can see some little female flowers developing on the plant. (Not to be crass, but they look like tiny green penises. Am I the only one who thinks that? Probably not. Hee hee.) So, hopefully it won't be too long until we're inundated with fresh squash.
