Time to Clean the Coop

This week 7th grade cleaned the chicken coop while the chickens looked on.

Winter held on to our broody hen, Oreo, while her "nest" was cleaned.

One of many fresh eggs collected before cleaning out the coop.

Meanwhile, outside the coop, the rain barrel has been thoroughly filled to overflowing.

Someone felt the need to wash their toes in the rain water.

All the rain has also given us plenty of clay to play with.

In addition to cleaning the coop, some of us weeded the carrots.

Batian loves weeding carrots so much that he is jumping for joy!  OK, maybe not really...  Daniel, our photographer for the day, took this shot multiple times until he got it just right.

Meanwhile other members of the class prepared a bed for the cucurbits.

Sarah found some interesting things while prepping the bed...
World's longest worm.

And, the rarely seen Emerson Gnome.  He agreed to have his picture taken in Sarah's hand as long as we didn't show his face.  Worm included for size comparison.
