Yesterday we posted this photo about our field trip to the in-progress chicken coop.
Clearly, Bruce has been busy.
Here's today's view, with the three nesting boxes built out on that same wall. In final form, a hinged door will allow the hungry omelet maker to lift and remove eggs.
Here's an inside look showing the perchlike board edge chickens will land on. From there it's a quick hop into one of the nesting boxes lined with fluffy bedding for a comfortable egg landing.
Indoors under the shop lights, our half dozen basil varieties are up. Click to enlarge and view the Purple Dark Opal basil from Seed Saver's Exchange, already revealing its genetic destiny.
