Backyard Bounty


 I know, I know, it probably looks like all I'm going to share is pictures of vegetables from our garden! Okay, I might share just one from my morning picking (although, sadly, our garden this year is nothing to brag about)...


 But what was particularly exciting that came from our backyard this week was our very first egg! 

Justus found it the other evening in a nesting box and even though we knew (hoped) our hens would be laying soon, we were still all a little awed by our perfect little egg!   It seems like just yesterday we picked up our chicks. 
 

I'm not exactly sure who was our first layer, but I do have it narrowed down to either Peony or Tulip, thanks to the color of the egg shell (smile)!

  3. How wonderful that your first egg was so pretty. Friends just came to visit and brought a dozen eggs in the cutest container and they were all different colors. They live in the country and can keep chickens.

    Have a lovely day.
