I got one of those upside-down tomato planters last year, so I finally hung it up over the weekend, along with another I picked up for strawberries.

the rest 'Chandler'. It'll be interesting to see if they work. They

to create a veritible chicken pinata with the things. If there is
food, chickens WILL find a way to get to it.

built like a truck. Big chunks of the finish have literally been

keyboard is my favorite part!
