Jeff the"Proud Papa"

Bella, the last hen of our original bantam mix flock is sitting on 3 little eggs. Because I did not pay attention to when she starting sitting, I am guessing on when we will have chicks. Best I can tell, it will probably be the end of this week or first part of next.

I have often joked that she never laid an egg in her little life(she was my smallest hen)... however guess she showed me...funny she only laid 3 though. My past clutches have ranged between 8-13 eggs. I'm assuming she gave it her all...haha..seeing how she is 10yrs old. Wonder how that equates to human years?

Now, we just wait and see and hope they are not all roosters.

Game on

In full swing around here....potatoes, peas and onions....done!

Tomatoes are up and working on their 2nd leaves, won't be long before I will need to repot them.

Pepper seeds to be seeded today! I am a little late, but proceeding on anyway.

Left to do or should I say left for Monty to do - fashion 2 more beds for the corn.

All that's left now is to wait and see what works or doesn't. And to quit looking every day to see what's growing...hehe..just can't stand it...have to look :)
