    Hi There! Welcome to the Washington group. ALL are welcome! Although many of us are from the wetter side of the state we have folks from all over the place, even Oregon. My daughter used to have a few Neth. Dwarfs, they're so adorable. I didn't realize Cheney has a microclimate. My mom used to be down in Clarkston and her tomatoes were fabulous. Tomatoes are the MOST important thing in my garden! What breeds of chickens do you have?

    Thank you all! I grew up on the coast (but in Oregon) and often miss the other side of the Cascades :)

    I guess I should say we are in a micro-micro climate, tomatoes grow just fine in Cheney & Spokane but we are surrounded by basalt cliffs in a little valley-ish pocket and it can get very cold at night.. 50-60 degree temperature shifts in 24 hrs is totally normal in the summer!

    We have 2 production reds & 2 leghorns, I will share a pic soon!
