Hoss is really sweet, and I don't think he would ever hurt a chicken on purpose, but he plays roughly, and might injure one accidentally. So, Jacob and I have been trying to train him to be very gentle with them. I'm not sure he gets it completely, but he's improving steadily. Mom took some pictures of one of our training sessions.

With all the rain we've been getting, the garden is growing by leaps and bounds. We've been planting like crazy around here - tomatoes, watermelons, squash, cucumbers, and lots of other good stuff, including a gazillion heads of lettuce. For those of you wondering how many "a gazillion" is, it is approximately 2000. Yeah, that sounds like a lot, even to me!
We are 10 days and counting from the beginning of our CSA. Here's a picture of part of the garden.
Can you guess what Jacob did on Saturday?
Yep. He played paintball with some of his buddies. They were very nice to let me take some pictures.
In other news, we got all the siding on our house! A big thank you to all the people who helped us finish up this project.
As you can see, the house is a nice monotone gray now.
