  1. Yay!! Another list maker!! My list lately has been drowning me, but oh the changes that have been made. I have lots of blog posts yet to come, but still have house guests, so time is limited… will return in a week or two. But your list makes my heart glad!!

  2. Is the chicken pen different than the chicken coop? And if not, does this mean we’ll be seeing a lot of recipes featuring chicken in the near future?

    I’m not sure how salt resistant they are, but Lombardi Poplars make a great screen. And they grow fast. Again, no clue about salt tolerance.

    Build a fence – it’ll be salt proof. Then on the other side that faces you, you can plant vines that climb up the fence.

  4. you are doing what i SHOULD do,… make a list! Way to GO!

  5. Forget about chickens. I love croquet. We played it for hours in my neighborhood when we were kids.
