EGGS-FIBERUARY-GARDENING AND PLANTING BY THE MOON

31 01 2016

GREETINGS

Another sunny day and in the 40’s.  The days are longer and Spring is coming.  The last week has been a week of  sudden events.  My youngest daughter Betty fell and broke three bones and has had surgery and my oldest daughter, Cindy lost her beloved Mother-in-law quite suddenly on Tuesday.  Most of the time we live our lives without consequence but these two things happening to me remind me how one instant can change things and how short and precious life is.

EGGS

What the heck happened here.  I am guessing that this hen didn’t lay an egg in a couple of days and this was what happened.  It looks like a combination of two eggs.  Some solid shell with a membrane over part of it.  Never a dull moment in raising chickens.

GARDENING AND PLANTING BY THE MOON

I have been trying to get this book for several months now.  I finally got it today and it looks great.  I can’t wait to start reading it.  According to my blogger friend Anne, who has used this method you do get better yields and flavors.  Thanks Anne for the info.
