~ In the Garden ~

~ Yellow Crookneck Squash ~


~ Calico Popcorn ~


~ Tomatoes mulched and caged ~


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.

What a lovely garden - I can almost taste the fresh tomatoes - warmed from the sun.

The garden looks so inviting!

Now I am curious to know which
hen is laying the golden eggs?

I was reading that selenium is
inside the yolk of the egg. Very
good for you.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

PS. Did you get a chance to
look at the firepit on my
blog? I was going to close
it out because I want to
make sure people get in on
the apron fabric Pino Events.

Have a Great Week!!!

Hi Flassie , I did check-out the fire pit , it's wonderful , love those smooth round rocks.

I didn't get a chance to watch the hens today , had errands to run. I checked the nest tonight , but there was no egg today. Maybe I'll figure out the mystery tomorrow.

I've got a couple of more pics of lambsquarter , will try to post them on my herbal blog tomorrow.
