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.

More New Layers

New Pullet Eggs
Well some more new girls have begun laying. I have a pen of Black Copper Marans, which lay a very dark egg (well they are supposed to, but sometimes they don't lay as dark as the breeder is hoping for). In with them are some crossbreed girls which are about the same age, some of which have begun laying.

In this picture I found the egg on the right on Thurs and today I collected the egg on the left. Probably from the same girl. One of the Marans girls has a pretty red comb, so I think it belongs to her. I'll try and get some pictures of them up in the next couple of days.

Also today, in another pen one of my young Welsummer pullets left a cute little egg. I love all the freckles! More ducks and chicks are hatching and the weather has been pretty warm and dry. Going to have to water the garden this weekend!
