One Big Goose Egg!

Someone was selling goose eggs at the farmer's market and my middle boy really wanted one.  I just love how excited my kids get over things like farm eggs and veggies.  Anyway, our middle son "A" could not wait to cook and eat this egg.  You can see how big it is compared to his 8 year old hand.  The yolk was as big as his palm.  When scrambled, it was the equivalent of approximately 3 chicken eggs.  He loved it and now he is trying to get my dad to get geese.

First Tomato

It is small, but we were so excited!!  The first tomato of the year was picked this morning.  There are about 5 more that are starting to turn red and many, many more that are still green.  Yay for tomatoes!

Small Garden Harvest

This is today's harvest.  It will make a nice little lunch salad.  I love being able to pick our lunch right before we eat.

Garden Update





 Salad Mix


We live in town now with a very small yard, mostly  being occupied by a very large dog.  This leaves little room to garden.  Consequently. the garden is currently all in containers on the front patio.  Our yield thus far has been quite small, only a handful of strawberries and some lettuce, but everything is growing nicely and I have high hopes.

Our chickens moved to my Dad's farm and are doing well.  They are currently digging and fertilizing a 4X8 garden bed for my summer garden and laying eggs.
