What's in the box?
|Chicken Little with Teeny & Tiny...Folded Comb...still sitting|
There were a few eggs. Now that those silly hens and chicks are moved to the maternity and nursery wing, the other hens are back to laying. Each of the five hens who took up broody duty this year have hatched at least one chick, some as many as four! However, it remains to be seen how many of these are roosters. I've already got my eye on one who certainly acts like a plucky young cockerel.

How about those carrots?
Every color of the rainbow. Let me know what you think. I'm just as happy with plain old orange carrots. Some of these have quite a history. The dark purple ones are Turkish Black carrots. The yellow carrot is closest to the original carrot.
The broccoli this week was Purple Peacock and De Cicco. That's the end of the beets. Even some white Egyptian Beets made it into the boxes. I myself love golden beets. I must start more of these in the fall. Of course I like all beets. It will be a few weeks before we see anymore of these.
This week's onions were Cipolla Rossa Lunga Di Firenze which is the name of the red torpedo onions and the yellows were: Pukekohe Longkeeper out of Australia. I hope to have both of these again. Meanwhile the onion trial for seeds continues. The gopher is sure enjoying these. I wonder what onion stuffed gopher tastes like?
Have a great week.
