Maybe this blog should be called Ruth’s Garden!

Or maybe not. 

It seems I write more about my garden and garden related things lately.

I assure you, I still have my chickens and love them as much as ever.

My chickens are an extension of my garden and a progression that comes from loving to plant and grow my own food and flowers.

I love to be connected to nature.   I would love to have been born on a farm or bought a farm years ago.

I may still do it one day!

In the meantime I will continue to be an Urban Farmer.  My chickens personify this for me and although gardening posts seem to have taken over my blog – my chickens are in the background being a large part of who I am.

I just consider ‘Chickens’ or better yet ‘Chickies’ to be a term of affection for all the things I love.  So here are some pictures of the non-chicken ‘Chickies’ I love:

    Don’t need to apologize to me for not JUST blogging about your feathery chickens.

    Your related articles and even your non-related are so well done, I enjoy reading them ALL, and always learn something NEW!

    Bet you would like to set straight whoever coined the phrase, “You are TOO CHICKEN to JUMP OFF A CLIFF!”

    Chickens and all birds are too smart to do DUMB STUFF– now confirmed by scientific studies.

    Until recently their tiny segmented brains were UNDER-RATED compared to other species with larger sized brains. Experiments pitting a crow vs a dog to see who could solve the many INTRICATE steps it would take to get to FOOD, ended with Crows winning by a LONG SHOT!

    Now when anybody calls ME and OLD CROW, I’ll just say; “Thank You!”

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
