Cooper just got back from Tennessee. His uncles live on a mountain where ATVs are the preferred method of transportation and backyard chickens are welcome. This is their flock of Rhode Island Reds, New Hampshire Reds, and Barred Rock chickens. I wish he took a picture of the coop; it’s a mini-version of their house! Out in the not-so-mini garden, giant squash climb up the posts and creep down the hill. Tomatoes, carrots and broccoli are percolating under the much kinder Tennessee sun, and fresh blackberries are only an ATV hop up the mountain. Uncle Warren taught Cooper how to make blackberry cobbler; he treated us to dessert last night. We didn’t have fresh mountain berries, but it was still delicious!
