Week of Spring:: Gardens & Chickens

I have taken it upon myself to encourage Spring to come along a little quicker by reminding it what Spring looks like through pictures this week. If you would like to join in welcoming Springyou can on your blog too! The more the merrier.

Spring, this week is devoted to you.

We love you Spring--come quickly!

**** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** This past week I decided that I would stop dreaming about the garden the kids and I will be putting in this Spring and start doing something about it. Last fall I raked all of the leaves over onto the garden area to decompose..hoping it would help the soil.

The girls (chickens) did their share also in scratching and pooping. I know, I know...chicken poop but who am I to turn up my nose at free help, right? Bandit was being the boss in the above photo...she just couldn't believe I knew what I was doing but I knew her ulterior motive; she was sneaking worms. hmph..

I almost gave away the girls recently so I wouldn't have to deal with their escapes from the yard. I just can't give up these eggs though. You can see the difference and taste it. I had to share the difference with you. The dark orange ones are the girls eggs. They are so thick and yummy and good for you.If you have a chance look around locally for some fresh eggs....sooo good.
