I posted this photo of our Barred Rock Rooster on Instagram the other night, with the invitation for you guys to help me name him. I don't know if he'll be staying with us or not, but regardless, he's a handsome fella and he needs a good name, don't you agree? .
Some of the best responses came in. Seriously, I couldn't stop smiling while I read these:
So, tell me---what would YOU name this rooster? Give me a great name idea or pick one from the list above and if I choose it, maybe I'll even mail you a prize. Yes, I think I'll do that. It sounds fun.Country in the Cul-de-Sac board. If you're into this type of thing, feel free to join me over there.
The garden is thriving, although it needs a good weeding and some serious love. I jumped in head first at the beginning of summer and as life has become a bit crazier, my time out there has been less frequent. I've still been watering, but that's about it. Oh and as you can see, Eliza has been "helping".

Today I ate my first lemon cucumber and it was amazing! No, it doesn't really taste like a lemon. I'd say that it simply tastes like a better-than-average cucumber. I do like that name though- lemon cucumber. It sounds inviting, doesn't it?
This summer our little Urban Farm has been so much fun. Not only can you live in town, but you can grow some of your own food and go out and collect your own eggs every day. To watch our kids experience this and to see that it's normal to them, just feels right to me.
It's the simple things like watching the chickens wander around the yard while I fold laundry that make me smile. I'm a country girl at heart and to have a piece of that in our cul-de-sac is God's way of showing me that He's into the details.
So, what would you name that rooster?
