GO VOTE! and read about my chickens

UPDATE: This is what I sent to my employees this morning

Please make time today to vote for the candidate of your choice.
Nothing is more important than to cast your vote

The lines might be very long so take your knitting, a book or your work.
Above all have patience.

Good luck!

With autumn in full swing, the flowers in my cutting garden have long since faded. Rather than have the flower beds in a completely dormant state, I thought it would be a good idea to plant cold weather lettuces in the very same beds where we have lilies, tulips, and hyacinths planted. You may recall that the cutting garden is adjacent to my chicken coops and this lettuce crop is intended to serve as nourishing food for the hens, roosters, and turkeys. They seem to really appreciate pecking at fresh produce and I feel good being able to stretch the gardening season this way.
