RosieL, sure thing! I'm not sure how great of an impact the inadequacy of proper space will have, but we'll see. I'll take some pics as we go.
Heather, that's one of the reasons we try to grow food. It's also much better for the environment (you can't get any more local than your own yard! ) and healthier, as the food does not lose so many nutrients in transport. I also just plain think it feels good to grow your own food, and DD1 loves helping. I am happy that she is so connected with and understanding of where food comes from.
We're raising chickens for the first time this year for all the same reasons. (Just for eggs, not meat.) They're pretty great and it's really exciting... they won't start laying until nearer to Fall, they are still young, but it is going to be WEIRD. We've been vegan for about 8 years, and the thought of eating an egg still really freaks me out, let alone feeding one to my kids. But morally I will have no issues eating our own eggs, I know they have space, I know they are truly organic and truly loved and treated well, and also that the eggs are unfertilized, which I know doesn't seem to bother most people, but really grosses me out. It's still just plain weird, though.
