Coop Re-Do, Spring Veggie Garden

Anya Watching the Spring Birds

Coop Re-Do-
After much gathering of materials & building I finally was able to paint yesterday! 75, clear, sunny and a little breezy.

Before painting

After painting and decorating! Same color as before- our house trim color

My new sign from Bainbridge Farm Goods- Etsy  I like the purple and sage combination

My old yard sale sign

My $10.00 door!

The old coop, nice but hard to clean. We saved the sun room for winter, and will use then.

Spring Garden-
Today I planted oak leaf lettuce, french radishes and flat leaf Italian parsley in our cold frame. I planted some starts of other lettuces, collard greens (which did awesome last year!) and Swiss chard last week. I got the pansies in my kitchen window basket, which I love!

It looks great. Yesterday was out good weather day. Today was nice in Gooding, but the wind was a pain in the neck. We didn't get done near the amount of projects we had planned, but the chicks got a new brooder. Good job on the coop redo. I like it a lot.

Although I'm a "practical" kind'a gal, I have to admit, I'd LOVE to fancy up my chicken coop! Your's looks just lovely :)

Oh, and YAY for kitty pictures!

Thanks, most of the materials were recycled or free. We bought very little,

Yes, we LOVE Anya!

That new coop looks great! I will not let my hens see it, as it's much nicer than theirs... and I love the color. My cats are like Anya and love their Cat TV.

Dang, Susan beat me to the Cat TV comment! ;)
Love, love the new taller chicken house! I'll bet it will be MUCH easier to clean. Looks like you have a good start on your garden too!

Love the picture of your cat. I am a cat person. I have 4 of them. Your coop turned out great.
