Here they are greeting me at the gate:
Ern's birds always get some too:
UPDATE: Got three more eggs at 6:00 PM for a total of seven eggs today, most ever! Seven eggs from seven hens, wow. These are happy girls.
Pasting up but we have more coming tomorrow or the next day. We are getting into the swing of spring and I am cutting metal barrel rings to build a mini-hoophouse. We should also be planting peas and maybe some other cold tolerant crops. Seed starting in trays is going to happen in mid- March this year. Tomatoes, chiles and basil will be it though. Everything else from the beets to the zucchini will be directly seeded. We are very busy and yet keeping up with everything, having fun, working a lot and saving money. This season looks promising as ever and we hope to build more on what we already have. A pasture or large movable yurt is in the early stages of planning.
