Right now we have seven laying hens and three teenagers. Eggs have slowed down to only one or two a day even with the golf balls in the boxes. Spring is around the corner and then I can start making quiche and cakes! Next in the agenda is seed starting. We need to purchase a couple more lights to accommodate both the veggies and the flowers I have added this year. We have officially finished all of last seasons zucchini and canned tomatoes, we still have plenty of jams, jellies, green beans, salsa, pickled jalapenos and green peppers! I have a half a dozen gourds drying to make into bird houses and am looking forward to trying the luffa gourd again. I am feeling the need to be outside and when it is only 20* I really can't be out more then thirty minutes. I have been thinking about going snow shoeing... we will just have to wait and see.
