A Little update on our Little Farmlet

Here's our garden. I think it looks like a pretty sea of green. It looks waaaay better than what it's producing - not sure why? But we have gotten stuff and we'll see what we end up with. There is a rather large pumpkin growing - in addition to smaller ones. Miles has 3 spaghetti squash. Today the kids discovered a quite large green gourd - what do you do with a gourd? Strictly for decoration? Zucchinis are finally arriving. Tomatoes are finally ripening. So we aren't getting a bounty of stuff, but I guess at least we are getting stuff.


We got eggs! - (please say this to the tune of "We got Annie!") So exciting. Miles (or someone else, but usually Miles) checks every morning for eggs. Then this afternoon Miles was checking again and viola! eggs! There were 2 rather smallish eggs (blue in color), and so I hard-boiled them and we ate them with our dinner. Yummy fun!

Wow, it does look beautiful! Glad you are getting some things as well. And your chicken coop is totally adorable if you can say that about them :)

The boys looks so proud of the eggs!
