Please forgive my absence with posting of our happenings here at One Blessed Acre.. . . the days are shorter and we have been enjoying the last few days of sunny, beautiful weather outside. We've been busy with school, sewing projects (post to come soon), learning to finger knit, crochet projects and life in general.
Let me catch you up on our exciting news. Our chickens are finally back to laying again, which means that soon the "Chickens on Vacation" sign will come down from our egg stand and our local customers will be so joyful! We also bought an incubator and currently have six eggs being kept warm and cozy in hopes of having babies in 21 days. The General Manager keeps saying that his garage is turning into a farm nursery, what with the addition of our bunnies and our soon to arrive baby goats.
With the loss of several of our birds to the busy road in front of our house, we've been wanting to replace them. We are also thinking of expanding the flock to increase the egg supply this summer. It still amazes me how blessed we've been by this stand. Everyone in town just loves to come and get eggs from us and it seems as if we are always "sold out." It is so special to watch the tourists drive by the house, slowly back up and pull out their camera to take pictures of the stand. I would have never thought that my egg stand would bring so much attention.
The daffadils in front of the picket fence are starting to pop up all along the fence line. Last weekend I spent several hours outside weeding the beds so that the sweet buds wouldn't have to compete with the overgrown weeds.
