Feather your Nest Friday, 26th November, 2021.
It is less than a month to Christmas Day! I hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving had a wonderful day. Because so many of you celebrate Thanksgiving I have come to really appreciate it and did think of all the things I have to be thankful for much of yesterday.
It was a busy week! Our weather has been very cool, so far. This is great but there is a downside which is some of the veggie plants have just sat there not really growing as they do in warm weather. To try and remedy my pumpkin patch Andy dumped a big heap of compost for me with the tractor. I used this to plant another dozen pumpkin seedlings that I grew from seeds I saved. They are looking really good!
I added compost to raised garden beds and planted more spinach, capsicum, cumbers and zucchini.
One of my hens has been sitting on ten eggs. I knew if there were to hatch it would be Sunday or Monday. On Sunday I heard chirping!! I investigated and found ONE little black chicken.
