The Pets in my Family

In our house I have 7 fish, 1 gecko, 4 caterpillars and my papa has a dog. Now outside I have a cat, Justin has a cat, I have a horse, Lucas has a pony, and our family has 12 chickens and 1 rooster. Each kid has his or her own chicken. Except Sam and Justin. It doesn't interest them too much. We have 3 Bardrocks, 3 Road Island Reds, 1 Black Sexlink, 2 Golden Sexlinks and 2 Ostralarps. The names are not spelled right. They might be right, who knows.I think that is a lot of pets. You know what's cool.....our neighbors have 22 chickens, 1 rooster and 2 turkeys, now that's cool. Oh you can't forget our other dog Joe. He is really our neighbor's dog. But he's at our house most the time. He slept on our porch during the summer. He is so much fun. Especially in the winter. We have fun with all of our pets.

Our Huge Garden

Our Garden is HUGE!!!!! We planted all sorts of things. We planted two types of corn, twelve types of tomatoes, two types of onions, four or five types of carrots, 7 types of peppers,
2 types of cabbage, 1 type of chive, one type of celery, two types of pumpkins, one type of potato, 4 or 5 types of squash, 3 types of cucumbers, 1 type of watermelon, and 1 type of cantaloupe. I say that's about it. Our corn did not do so well. Our tomatoes did good. Our peppers did awesome. Our onions did OK. Our celery did terrible. It died before we got any. Our carrots did OK. They are still growing. Our pumpkins did good. We picked every last one this morning around 9 o'clock. Our potatoes did good. We have eaten all of them. I hope we will plant more next year. All our squash did very good. Our cucumbers did good. Our cantaloupe didn't do too well. We had to feed all of them to the chickens because they tasted like onions. Our watermelon did OK. We only got two small ones. They did taste good though. There is our garden and all about it. I did not go into too much detail, O'well.
