Well, quite has been developing during these past 5 weeks. I have been in and out of town, but things keep growing and the flock keeps laying so here’s an update!

First, the garden. It has been growing like crazy!

There have been cucumbers, jalapenos, and the tomatoes are just starting to come along.

The first box shows the replant – peas out beans in! The second photo is my zucchini. It is finally producing some nice squash.

This is the first tomato of the season. It is a red zebra. I love them!  There will be another tomorrow.

In the coop we the chick sisters have started laying. Those are the sisters of the duck posse. Madge and Gertrude are laying lovely little eggs. One is very dark and the other is light – almost white.

I was making zucchini bread yesterday, (that will be a future post) and when I cracked my third egg, I discovered this!

Although the egg was bigger than the others, the yolk was small – because there were two!  A double yolker is always a wonderful surprise. So, although there are fewer eggs this time of year, because of the heat, we are still getting quality even if not the quantity.
