I decided to dig and pot up a few herbs out of the garden last week. The basil and dill had grown from seeds from this year. I dug up parsley, oregano, thyme and sweet marjoram. I have sage growing too, but didn't pot it up. Now for an awesome surprise... I found a tomato seed growing in my potting soil. It had turned into a beautiful plant. Now, hoping to grow it out this winter/provide enough heat and light. :)
Painting more signs as time allows.
The other day, I was determined to find the seed we lacked. I went to the first stop. The owner looked at me like crazy when I asked him for seed. He then handed me a 10lb bag of peas, and two very full packs of lettuce and spinach and said "Here, no charge!" I was ecstatic! He said he probably had swiss chard and mustard in the back, but he wasn't for sure. I walked to my car,drove to the garden store in town... no seeds. Okay. Then I drove right back to the same store I was just in. I went inside determined to get someone to go in the back room and sell me some seed. So, with a smile I accomplished my goal! Chard and Mustard just as he said. One more stop to make, and then we had kale! All of this you see in the photo cost me only $1.84! How amazing is that...
With two does back in heat, and one child buck who only wants to love on one of them, hopefully we will be pregnant this time around. We will see.
This last week everyone here has had a horrible cough, and colds being spread. Hopefully it is on its way out of the house. One very smashed toe, and a dog who has found a fondness for our lovely chickens. What to do?
Two of our turkey hens are sleeping elsewhere at night. Coming home first thing in the morning for food, and then gone all day? Maybe she is roosting out we thought, so the boys and I decided that we were going on a hunting adventure. After we were in the woods it dawned on me that I had never found a turkeys nest in the forest before, and that I probably wasn't going to find hers either. Maybe if we followed her one morning, but time for that hasn't came around yet. Until next time..
