These are Rick Bayless’s chickens. I met them when I was lurking in his backyard. I mean, getting a tour of his garden. (Side note: I just learned that looking at this picture and then googling “Rick Bayless’s chickens” is kind of traumatic.)

Megan H through some kind of magic (or forethought) had a couple spots reserved for this tour  and invited me to join her. Stalk a local celebrity, see a beautiful garden AND get to meet Megan in person? Yes, please.

I looked it up afterwards, and people are already signing up for this tour for NEXT summer! Thanks Megan for inviting me to share the fun with you!
