Firstly -- another mystery plant... Can anybody ID this one for me?
Life is starting to get hectic now. The scaffolding was delivered yesterday. Now we just have to put it up. We are looking for somebody with a JCB to do some ground works for us -- does anybody in the area have a recommendation of a good JCB operator?
Sunrise one day last week:
I know this just looks like yet another egg, but this egg, laid last Wednesday, was the 9th egg of the day (found for me by Georginia) -- and it was the first time we've had 9 eggs in a single day this year -- which means that all the hens are laying...
Now the duck eggs: We've only had two so far, and then she seems to have stopped, but Bridget says that she won't lay continuously like the hens so, so I'm not worried. They are much richer than the hen eggs and more gelatinous if that makes any sense. In this measuring cup, the two on the sides are the duck eggs, and the top and bottom are the hen eggs -- see how much more clearly defined the duck eggs seem?
The ram lamb celebrated his two week birthday last Thursday -- he has grown an incredible amount in a very short period of time!
This morning it was bright and clear up top, but lots of mist and fog hanging lower down in the valley...
