Our Little Urban Farm

Last winter, our good friend Kalki, owner of eScape Landscapes, installed some raised beds and a run for our chickens. We love the way our backyard is shaping up!


The Midtown Chicks are especially grateful. Saffron wanted me to give Kalki a shout out.

The run extends from the coop which allows the ladies to roam free during the day. This also prevents them from enjoying our crops before we do. They have plenty of shade and places to scratch and peck.



Our yard may be small, but its packed full of goodies. Thanks to Shawn's green thumb, we will enjoy herbs, veggies and fruit.
