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.

New Chicks

New chick on the block!

Well  I have six new chicks this week. Offspring of Earl and one of my EE girls. You saw Earl the other day and I'd show you a picture of mamma but she is molting and having a bad feather day.

These are some great look little round puffballs.

another yellow and grey chick

Altogether there are five chicks from the Easter egger girl,  three grey and yellow and two red. One of the red ones tho has a lot of grey/yellow fuzz on it's body and mostly just red on it's head and back

The last chick here is from the Wellie/leghorn girl. It is much bigger than the EE chicks.

I'm thinking the grey and yellow ones might be what they call lavender, but I'll have to wait for them to get a little bigger to be sure I think.
