We planted three rows of raspberries on Thursday, and a giant pot of strawberries on Friday. All of the plants are dormant, and look quite sad. I was sure the strawberries were dead, but the lovely lady at the garden centre assured me they were only sleeping. Having been told a similar story about roadkill by my parents, I'm not completely convinced.
Looks like our new hen house and run will arrive on Monday. I've located a breeder in Doune (near Stirling) who specialises in rare breeds, so I hope to visit them later in the week. They have lots of bantams, and some big girls, too. The Wyandottes and Croad Langshams are gorgeous. There is another breeder by Oban who has Marans, Barrnevelders, and Scots Greys. Argh! It's hard to choose.
Would any chicken owners out there have any suggestions? I would be grateful.
