There is a place on St John called Miss Lucy's, which has some great brunch and dinner specials. These are conch fritters with mango sauce. The conch is the pretty shell that people hold to their ear to hear the "waves". Anyway, eating right by the ocean is a treat in and of itself. A curious chicken sat on a chair at our table eyeing our dinner. Here is her little one. There were also goats running around the property next to the restaurant. Here is a pic of a cute baby goat.
Sunday I was visiting my parents' farm in Wisconsin. I also happened to pick some vegetables to take home while there. When my mother let the chickens out, they headed straight toward the veggies and a few even took some pecks out of the tomatoes. According to my mother, the chickens LOVE tomatoes.
I was at my parent's farm in Wisconsin over the weekend. The sunflowers and Queen Anne's Lace were in full bloom. Also the yarrow and black eyed Susan. You know, I just realized how many of the flowers are either purple or yellow. Anyway, things are growing like crazy out there -- including the chickens.
