The Ides of May. A beautiful day today and then a little shower tonight on the garden and flowers. We are letting the chickens out to roam everyday now and locking them up at night. They sure enjoy chasing bugs all day. We have 10 baby chicks now, 2 from the big brown hen and 4 each for each of the little banties.
Clayton said he was having cornbread and REAL milk tonight. He got farm milk from Mr. Bartlett. He skimmed the cream and had cereal with cream yesterday. When he goes to work tomorrow, I may go steal some cream from his fridge. Monday, I sent all the kids up to his garden to steal strawberries. When they got back, I asked if they saw Uncle Clayton. They said when he came out we hid.
We had a few strawberries in our patch tonight. The girl gathered and ate all of them.
