First, our garden progress.The children started tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and a few other things yesterday and this morning. We cleared the counter space in our church computer/media room (that sounds fancy but really it's just a little room behind the pulpit with a computer, a few printers, cds and tape equipment, and so on). I guess you never know what could be in your church 'media room'! Corban hung full-spectrum lights from 2x4s ... I think this will work well? He suspended them from chains so he can adjust the height as the plants grow. Here are a few pictures of that:

We also just got a few chicks yesterday (Plymouth Barred Rocks). I forgot to get a picture of the coop Corban and Tylor made, but maybe I'll get it on here next time. We are not using it right now anyway as the chicks are in a homemade cardboard brooder till they grow a little. They are so cute! We are trying to handle them a lot so they will be more tame.
Here is a picture of one of our babies:
Here is a picture I found online of an adult:
