We got another egg today , Yay !
Wow , June is here already , this year is flying by fast. I had a busy day in the garden , weeding , mulching , and looking for pest. The broccoli and cabbage haven't done well this year , the worms are having a feast. I've tried some organic pest control , but it's not helping very much. I did harvest 1 head of broccoli last week.
The guineas have been a big help with the potato beetle problem , they just go down the rows pecking them off. They seem to like the blooms also , they've eaten most of them , but I don't think it will hurt the potatoes. Today I weeded , then mulched the cucumbers and squash with compost. I also pulled more dirt to the popcorn and weeded the onion row. The garlic is almost ready to harvest , it's going to be early this year due to Spring being so warm.
We were rewarded with another egg today , not sure if it was the same hen. The color was slightly different and it was on the left side of the nesting box this time , yesterday's egg was on the right , but in the same nesting box. I'm going to try and watch the hens tomorrow to see who is laying the eggs.
