Tackle It Tuesday entry on C's Life
Today has been a busy day. I have had several vistors today at different times. Those ladies just don't know when it is the proper time to leave. Have you ever had vistors like that? They stay and stay and you feed them and give them drinks and they just don't leave. I did get a chance to sneak a picture of them. I am not sure I got their good side though.
I have 3 little hens that are on an egg laying frenzy! One laid 2 eggs in one day. This is very unusual! LOL Here is a picture of the eggs I have gotten since Saturday minus the ones we ate this morning. i can hear some of you asking what is the red stuff? It is blood. When a hen first starts laying eggs she will sometimes leave blood on the shell. I call them virgin egs. LOL. Sometimes there will be poop on the eggs. You have to check each egg to make sure there are no cracks in them. If there is,toss them. Best advice is to not wash the eggs until you are ready to use them. Washing removes stuff from the shell that keeps stuff from sneaking into the shell. Did you know that the eggs at the grocery store are unwashed? Have you ever seen poop on them?
I got started today on my little garden. Got the tiller out, checked the oil, poured fresh gas in it and pulled and pulled and pulled until it cranked. It took about 5 moinutes of pulling but I got it going! It sure did feel good working in my garden. It always makes me feel so good. Brook helped me out some too. I love it when she wants to help.
