1. Yellow acorns and a tiny yellow pumpkin.
2. Potato Harvest.
3. A double yolker.
4. Olive Snook
The original plan was to have a fall/winter garden this year, but time has slipped out from under me, so I'll be harvesting the last of our squash and potatoes before retiring the garden beds this week. The chickens are a big help in that department, avid diggers and scratchers that they are.
Several of you have asked me about little Olive since writing about her situation awhile back. She still limps, but just barely. From what I can see, the problem is in her joint, not her foot, and my guess is that she exacerbates the issue by jumping from the highest perch in the coop. We may need to remove it for the time being until she has a chance to heal completely. Otherwise, she's doing really well! She's still has yet to lay an egg, but I'm fond of her, so meh.
