Free Press + baby chicks

Look what appeared in yesterday's weekend section of the Burlington Free Press: Chad shouldering that thick post through a strawberry patch surrounded by other artists' work from repurposed materials. An Earth Day showcase.

Where can you find Chad and his cohorts? At the following fine establishment in Vermont:
Frog Hollow in Burlington
Frog Hollow in Middlebury
Art on Main in Bristol
Blinking Light Gallery in Plainfield
Northeast Kingdon Artisan's Guild in St. Johnsbury
Also I'll have stalls at the Mad River Craft Fair in Waitsfield August 30 and 31,
the Norwich Farmers Market July 26 and September 6, 20 and 27,
and Sunday Craft Fairs at the Norwich Farmers Market on July 6, August 3 and October 12.

To learn more about the galleries and vending events check the links to the right.

Here's a little homestead update. Or maybe I should say 100 little updates. Our chicks arrived! Edie and I went to the Bradford post office to pick them up Wednesday evening. We're raising Kosher Kings this year. They are supposed to be hardier than the cross breed we've raised in the past (which grow up to be basically huge chicken breasts on legs, without enough brains for self-preservation). They sure are cute with their little yellow rumps and spots on the tops of their heads. I'm sure they'll be very tasty this winter ; >
