An Abundance of Eggs, A Broody Turkey, and Sundry Other Spring-ish Things

Posted by mrssmythe on April 29, 2019 in Baking, Chickens, Cooking, Crafting, Critters, Garden, Seasons, Week in Review |

Eggs! Right now we’re getting so many eggs. All through the winter…nothing. Now, we’re overrun.

Snowbound…and Baking

Posted by mrssmythe on January 20, 2019 in Baking, Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

We woke up to about six inches of drifting snow this morning – a much lower amount than forecasters had been predicting for our area. That said, CPT A still had to get out the snow blower (only the second time we’ve used it this winter) and clear the drive. Meanwhile, I grabbed a shovel, […]
