My Edible Garden

I've been gardening for most of my life and have been a devoted fan of organic gardening the whole time. It just makes so much more sense to work in harmony with Mother Nature than to fight her. Besides which it is better for the planet and better for our bodies. Here you can see what I'm planting and harvesting, with gardening hints and resources thrown in for good measure.

pullet eggs
Well I had quite a little surprise when I went out to feed the babies this morning. Well I suppose at 3 & 4 months old they aren't really babies any more. Teenagers now, I guess.

Well there were two tiny little pullet eggs in the coop.
tiny first eggs

Two little cross breed pullets had laid their first eggs. These girls are only 16 weeks old. You can see how tiny their eggs are. They will get larger in a few weeks.

Their mammas were the barred rock banties hens I bought last year and their daddy was a mean Buff Orpington rooster. When he became even more human aggressive than he had been, I had mean rooster soup.

 These two girls are very sweet and calm natured. When I get the new  chicken house and pens built I think I will breed them to my Easter Egger boys and see what we get.
