Giving up my chickens

My daughter got 6 hens and a rooster a while back. Now she's moved away and I've been taking care of the birds, but really don't want to anymore. I'm not an egg eater so their eggs just go to waste. They're friendly enough and I like them, just have no use for them. I'm in Casa Grande. Hopefully someone lives down here and will take them. FREE to a good home.See More

"I had 2 bunches of lemon thyme, one in full sun (in a containter) and the other one partial only. The full sun one died and the partial one is on his way out now :( Pretty plant, smells nice but the weather here might be a bit harsh."

I finally built an herb spiral

I've been talking about it for a while. Looked up all 4 pictures on the internet of other peeps herb spirals and thought i could do that. I've got some nice rocks I gathered from near or on various mountains* and took lots of pics of the build. I posted it on another forum, but I had the mod delete the thread for lack of interest.

Maybe some folks around here will appreciate it more.

Since this is my blog though, it really doesn't matter here. I'll post them for my own… Continue
