Our daffodils only opened their heads this weekend.
|A long awaited beautiful splash of colour.|
|Forced rhubarb; not quite enough for a crumble just yet.|
The single biggest headache of it all is the darned chickens. Remember we got 2 new hens back in February? well so far they have laid a total of 3 eggs. Our old ladies aren't doing much better, but at least they are laying a reasonable size of egg.
|Our new girls lay eggs about 1/3 the size of our old ladies eggs.|
As long as they have enough food and water and the occasional chance to roam freely we are the best of friends and they should usually lay 1 egg each per day during all but the worst weather.
Come on chickens.. shake a leg
Today is gloriously sunny and the mini-holding (and for that matter I) would be much better off with a few weeks of this, thank-you very much.
