shhh, Im counting seeds

so i can't count stitches.
I wanted to work on the peach cables, but there are only so many hours in the day. Today, it was peach spindolyns and the new portable chicken pen. I was lacing the wire onto the pen frame with much satisfaction, because, in a way, it is like a giant basket, only it is wire, instead of withies.
Until the chickens are contained, I can't plant the spinach, and because "as soon as the ground can be worked" has come and gone last week, the spinach is not calling, it is screaming.. and until it can be laid to rest in the cold new ground, I can't count stitches and rework the peach cardigan. But, doesn't anticipation ad to the deliciousness...ok, writing time limit up....maybe I will just knit a few rows.....

  1. Free range chickens are so destructive on the gardens! Until about 20 months ago I had similar problems. Have fun with your seeding and wiring! Knitting can wait..sort of. It doesn't have quite the same window of opportunity pressures the gardens do. Different pressures altogether.LOL

  2. Okay, so you're about a month ahead of us???? I'll use your plantings as my calendar of what I should be doing :-) . . . oh, and we have ONE, count her, ONE, chicken who greets me in the morning but sans egg :-( . . . has Never laid one and is almost a year old. Told Trent she must hit the pot, but he said no, give her time . . .
