After much preparation and seed-mixing, spring planting was over in the short space of a few (long) days and fingers were crossed for good weather (subsequent weather: torrential rain). Kiska and the kids have been growing (physically and developmentally) in leaps and bounds, and there have been some new additions to the animals in the form of turkey and chicken chicks. The idea is that they will form self-sustaining flocks that can be used for eggs and meat – kid #3, as usual, has some thought on foodstuffs:
We don’t chew on people, but we do chew on drinks. And food. But we don’t chew on cups.
There also appears to be some confusion about the difference between food and colour:
Kid #3: The bowl is white! And the spoon is white too.
Me: The spoon is silver.
Kid #3: Silver? Or spinach?
