I decided to call my city zoning dept and was told by a very rude lady in a very rude way that in no way shape or form would they EVER allow chickens within the city limits. She also said she hoped they never even considered it. Grrrrr!
Regardless, I found some neat videos about underground chicken keeping. (not that I would ever do that!)
Yknow, I'm a realist. I expect it to snow in the winter here in Ohio. I look forward to some rain in the spring. Summertime is often hot. The chilly wind and falling leaves makes autumn a favorite season for me. So far this year in Ohio we have seen a few days below freezing, but a metric-crapton-o-rain. Had temps not been in the mid 50s today and been more typical, we would be under a good foot of snow by now I'm sure..
I sure am looking forward to some plowing this spring. Hopefully I wont need waders to get to my garden.
