Tomatoes and Chicks

Well, we finally got our huge tomato transplants out into the field.
They are all trellised between wooden teepees made from wood seconds from the Howards in town. We have four different varieties: Buffalo (your basic red all purpose tomato), Pruden's Purple (which is an heirloom that's pinkish purple and deliciously sweet), Green Zebra (a yellow and green striped tomato...
also quite tasty), and Striped German (a yellow and orange/red tomato that's perhaps my favorite tomato of all).
They already have flowers on them, so fruit is on its way!

Here are the chicks! I know you've all been waiting to see their little faces... Ben has been working hard to make their new
home in the chicken coup (where the pigs started out) as safe and comfortable as possible. They seem really happy.

And finally, I'll leave you with some more lovely pictures from our days here at the farm...
