We planted summer vegetables, including ten tomatoes, ten sweet peppers, six eggplant, and cucumbers. The green beans have been in the ground for a few weeks already, and the onions for a couple of months. We also tidied up the flower beds and pulled together a bunch of containers of both flowers and herbs.
In addition to the plants, Darren did a spring cleaning for his girls, the chickens. Yes, we have chickens. No, we don't eat them. Yes, we live basically in the middle of the city of Atlanta. (I can see my 50 story office building from our back porch.) The chickens aren't a statement or anything. We just met some neighbors who had them, and decided to try our hand at it. It turns out that they are really wonderful creatures, and we have really loved having them around.
When the weekend was done, we just enjoyed some time outside with the dogs. We ended the day on Sunday with a barbeque with friends. All in all, it was a perfect weekend!
