It's super hot here. We're doing all we can to keep our plants alive....and our chickens alive. However, this heat is good for something! Defrosting your freezer! If you've read the "In the Kitchen"tab, you know that we have a tiny frig/freezer combo. It's not an auto defroster so the little freezer section froze to a solid ice block. Since it's tiny, we just wheeled it to the front yard and let it sit in the heat with the door open. Several hours and a few hammer poundings later...we had a defrosted freezer.
Now, here's the purpose of this post... We had lots of ice hunks on the sidewalk and we thought, "What could we do with these that would be purposeful and not let them go to waste?" So we put ice hunks in our flower pots and around trees & bushes.
