So I confess I was a bit surprised when I stumbled across a great article about the virtues of the dandelion, written by Saara Nafici of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Brooklyn? you say. I know, right? When I think of Brooklyn, I think concrete jungle, not meadows of wildflowers (It's okay, Seattle, our designer chickens are still designery-er than theirs).
This week's blog is a case of both hello and goodbye. Juliet, Java and Midnight, our feathery and not-so-little-anymore friends, are soon off to greener pastures. Yes, bigger and better things await our little brood: they will be moving to their permanent home with their adoptive parents this Thursday.
