I thought that for my first post on FwG that the story of my mystery chicken would be a good place to start.
If you have friends with gardens, chances are that you also have friends with chickens ... or you may have them yourself! Show them off on this website!

Here it is, the first snowfall of the season at the Coleman gardens in Port Orchard, Washington. It's about an inch deep and still snowing like crazy. I'm like a little schoolboy in the snow ... totally love it. :)
I wanted to do it last year, but wasn't ready. This year, I will make my first steps into beekeeping, following in the footsteps of a good friend, Paul. I have ordered my hive boxes and supplies and just need to find a good local apiary now.
The past two years, I have used Polar Triticale as a successful cover crop in the gardens. I was amused to see that this year, one has gone to seed. Reminds me of the wheat fields I used to play in as a kid ... :)
And here is Blackbeard, our scrawny Easter Egger undergoing a full molt. Boy, the girls sure do look awkward and scrawny at this stage!!!
This year, a very strong El Nino weather pattern set up halfway through the growing season.
I don't like Stellar Jays - they are obnoxious, loud and they chase the other birds from the bird feeders. But I will readily admit that they are very pretty - and every now and then, I get a good pic of one.
