A couple weeks ago, we gathered at the farm on a rainy morning to move the chickens to a new field. Since the coop still does not have its wheels, this involves a large-ish group of people doing some heavy lifting. In this case we picked up the coop with the chickens still inside, and carried them to their lush new field full of chickweed and overripe pepper plants.

I know it’ll be a lot easier once we get the wheels on, but it sure was fun to get together and do this work. Afterward we gathered in the warm dry farmhouse for coffee and eggs on toast. And then we all got on with our week. Thanks to everyone who came out and lent a hand.
