arugula

arugula

i would bet money that God had yet to create chickens when He sent the eighth plague of locusts. chickens surely would have changed pharoah's mind and that hardhearted man could have avoided those last two plagues, um, like the plague.

my chickens are under coop arrest until my plants grow back. they ate everything, except the arugula.

That has got to be the most beeeyoutiful photo of arugula I've ever seen. And I agree -- chickens (and probably bunnies) could easily have been plague animals.

I couldn't help but giggle, Dawn, I'm sorry...

Chickens, bunnies and deer = the trifecta from HELL!

Yikes, I meant to say "Chickens, bunnies and deer = the trifecta from HELL, when in the garden".

"Coop arrest"!!! Too funny! And that's what arugala looks like?

Because of you, my mom just sent me home with a sandwich baggie of arugula seeds. :)

and the post about you and your kids calling each other when it rains made me teary eyed. what a special connection y'all share. <3! and thanks for sharing with all of us. it warms my heart (and many others i'm sure) to read your joy and love filled blog :)

I'm guilty of giggling too :D Love your stories of funny things that happen around the house. Your garden is gorgeous girl, and I'm especially intrigued by the plant in this post--must go see if I can find one.

love to you!

I've heard chickens are very stupid. They were smart to leave the arugula alone. I've never seen such a beautiful plant.
