I haven’t been writing often, which I should be as this is a garden journal. My dad got 5 healthy tomato plants (not sure which kind) from a coworker. I have transplanted them into bigger pots and have started some more cucumber seeds, as slugs seem particularly attracted to them. I am going to move them inside in hopes of deterring those little pests. We also got 4 chicks! 2 Australorps and 2 Rhode Island Reds, all at around a week or a week and a half old. We set up a brooder for them inside. I wonder how we are going to get Angel used to them…
Oh, by the way, here is the foxhound herself:
And here are my chicks:
And some pictures of my plants:
my newly transplanted tomato: you can also see the salad seedlings around it

A beautiful rose
I don’t know what type of rose this is.
The foliage is pretty – speckled sometimes (no, it’s not mold or some disease).
This plant produces a lot of small – about the size of the top of your pinky finger – beautiful pink rosehips in the autumn. This plant is beneath our nectarine tree, which unfortunately, while it has a lot of pinky-finger-sized nectarines, is heavily compromised by peach leaf curl, which has happened for the past 3 years or so.
