Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Well, after a beautifully perfect and sunny 70-degree weekend, we got our first taste of fall today.  It was rainy and chilly with a high of just 55 degrees!  Tomorrow night is supposed to bring our first frost, although we usually don't see those low temps since we so close to the heatsink of the downtown concrete and steel.  I suppose that's one advantage of being in an urban setting.

I closed one of the windows in the coop and lowered the sash on the other one to keep the girls nice and toasty in this cool weather.  They rewarded me today with 3 eggs *in the nesting box*.  Seems like they are getting in the groove with where to lay those eggs. 

We're still getting a ton of tomatoes and I grabbed two pockets full this evening after I put the girls "to bed".  I think I may go ahead and cover the plants tomorrow night just in case it does get cold enough to frost.
