CHICKENS!!  We have chickens.  In Des Moines, raising the yard bird is becoming more popular.  For our kick off event last week Nick Proctor brought for our entertainment and education a couple of the little pollos that his family is raising.  We had a good meeting where we did a final harvest and talked turkey (no, chicken actually).  If you have an interest in raising chickens checkout the local FB page or get in touch with me and I'll point you in the right direction.  Lederman71@msn.com to email direct.

We begin our in-school Garden Club next week.  We will, weather permitting, clean out a couple beds, glean any usable seeds from the remaining plants and spread some compost.  We will be demonstrating readying the beds for winter.
