Well, Would You Look at the Time

Has it really been a month since my last update?

I've been busy with the garden, of course.
Up to 81 jars of beans canned.
So far.

I've also dug onions, made salsa, and made pickles.

I also have CHICKENS!

 We got ten hens that are already laying. A guy wanted to quit doing chickens so we got them.
Here are the first eggs we got.




In other news, Saturday was my 18th wedding anniversary.
Honeyman is on call so we postponed the night out until next week.

Not a great day.
My uncle died that day. He had cancer throughout his body.

I guess I won't forget the anniversary of his death.

So, we postponed our night out til next weekend.
They are holding visitation and funeral next weekend.

Hopefully soon, I will have something more entertaining to share.

  2. Happy belated anniversary, but sorry to hear about your uncle. Wise to get the chickens for the eggs; I do believe egg prices will be going up so should save you some money at the grocery store.

    1. Thanks, Betty. We have actually sold some eggs. Made enough to pay for the feed, which is nice.

  3. Eggs from free range chickens are the best. Sorry to hear about your Uncle, even if expected it is always sad especially since it happened on your wedding anniversary. When you do go out enjoy every moment:)

    1. Birgit, they are. I grew up on farm eggs from my grandma and I am glad I finally have my own.
      Thanks.

    The baby chicks are very cute, though.

    1. Susie, sometimes we get brown eggs with white speckles on them. Kiddo likes those the best.

  6. Wow - you sure have been busy in the garden. I'm excited for those eggs - man it must be amazing having such fresh eggs. I'm a huge fan of all things "egg" and would think that was something grand to have access to them so easily. Are they easy to look after? You'll have to do a post just about them - it would interest me to know what it takes to actually do the hen thing.

    Sorry to read about your uncle, hugs are coming your way. I think postponing your night out with Honeyman was a good call, for both those reasons you mentioned.

    I was just thinking, as I flipped over the several calendars that hang around my house, how fast the year has gone by. Like you, I'm posting once in a while, seems other things are taking up my time. But, I'm always happy to see you out here in Bloggerville giving us an update as to what you've been doing.

    I hope all is well with your gluten situation. I've been busy making coconut bread and it makes me think of you. I sure feel better not having the wheat.

    Take care, and happy egg collecting… :) :) With smiles and happy thoughts, Jenny xxoo

    1. Jenny, Thank you.
      Chickens are easy. We did have to watch them awhile to make sure they didn't eat the garden up. But, they are doing good. I let them out in the evening and let them have fun while I get my outside stuff done. So far, one has managed to catch a couple small garter snakes.

  7. So sorry about your uncle.

    You are so creative, making salsa and canning beans wow.

    Chicken are nice and so are eggs.

    Happy Anniversary. I hope that next week you guys will get to have fun,
