Good morning! Summer is here, and so is our June Gloom! I love this time of the summer though. The mornings are perfect for gardening, and tending to the chores. Cool, and overcast. I love to come say hello to the girls first thing in the morning.
I have googled the possible reasons, and I can't figure out why. The coop is clean, with adequate air flow, and is not overcrowded. They have clean feed and water daily, and enough roosting space, as well as more than one nest box. They always lay in the ONE though anyway. I am puzzled. Anyone out there have an answer?
I usually go to the garden and break off a few greens for them. They love spinach!!
My stroll through the garden this morning was nice. Lots of changes daily. I am finally getting some broccoli forming.
The corn will be ready for 4th of July!!
I also removed my stackable composting bins down to the first layer, and removed, then added all of this compost rich earth to two raised pots in the front, and planted more pumpkins and cantaloupe. I like to stagger my planting so that the produce continues to come in all summer long.
I have been covering up my nasturtiums to prevent the chickens from munching on them. They are making a come back.
When I was in Big Bear, on my thifting jaunt, I picked up this aqua Tupperware piece.
The little basket I got is holding some of my tea towel collection. I seem to have a soft spot for cute kitchen towels too, and my drawers runneth over. So some are in the basket for a quick grab.
Today, these fresh eggs will be used to make another Blueberry Lemon Cake. And I will also be making another batch of granola. Not with eggs, of course.
And then, just because, I snapped this from underneath the umbrella by the garden.
