Eggs Laid This Year: 135
The chickens have been doing remarkably well this year, in the egg laying department! They will be 2yrs old soon,if they are not already, we got them in May 2006. I always though there egg laying dropped off as they got older!
This is three of them enjoying the sunshine and wrecking the lawn (if you could call it that)
I have taken to spending alot of time in my large greenhouse, the one behind the chickens, its like a conservatory. I have a chair in there and will often go and sit, to rest my back. I go in when its raining too, its like being in a caravan hearing the rain on the roof, I love the smell, the warmth, the brightness, just being in amongst the plants. I think I will look out for a little table then I could have a radio on when I'm in there and on cooler days maybe even read a book then maybe not.
How could you not enjoy leaves with such magnificent markings and colours, are you beginning to understand why I love them so much?
When I sit, I'm always looking and doing, seeing how things are coming on, are there any bugs that need destroying, has that plant grown since I looked at it 5 seconds ago, what can I do to make them bigger and better! You see this is my tropical greenhouse, the house with all the jungle plants with large leaves. I also overwinter my brugmansias in here.
I was sat in here on Sunday and spotted something that needed doing, can you see?
My standard brug had shoots growing from its stem
so not wanting to waste anything, I took them off and
potted them up. Well waste not want not. If they take I shall sell them on Ebay!! I have to pay for my expensive taste somehow!!!
