Cabbage made it on the list! Finally something different. I adore broccoli, but it's nice to have something else coming out of the garden, too.
I got 2 of these bowls of broccoli from side shoots, and my head of cabbage as well. The hens are still giving me a decent supply of eggs. I've only gone 5 or 6 days the whole winter without one or the other of them giving me a little present. Good hens! I'm considering chicks right now, but it's such a catch 22. If I get chicks I have a better chance of being discovered. SO it's get new chicks, get rid of aggressive hen - BONUS... get chicks, get found out - BOOO!!! What's a gal to do? Additionally something has been getting into their pen lately. Food consumption has tripled. I'm thinking it's probably rats, and there isn't much I can do about that. I can't afford a $150 treadle feeder...so I'm not sure what else to do. :-(
My first set of green beans is due this week. I can't wait to eat them!
Thanks Daphne for hosting, as always! Don't forget to check out her blog for loads of other harvests from around the world.
See you soon!
