A week of Firsts...













First radishes...













First egg!



















First flowers around the pond...

















First Rhode Island Red....
But the best first of all...ta-da...a grandson born to son Cody and daughter in law Sherin. No photos yet, but I'm going to visit in two days.

The new hen, Rudy arrived 2 days ago and has laid 2 eggs, putting to shame Mariah and Dorothy who are still slacking off after 2 weeks. So much for the theory of "stressed out due to change of environment". The black hens were quite jealous and possessive of their food and water when Rudy arrived, and behaved like playground bullies. They got the sharp points of their beaks rounded off, so they couldnt do her much damage.




The wood is all put up for next winter...we need more roof!

Wow, Kathi, what a lot of firsts! I marvel at the size of that woodpile! Lot of work involved there. Warms you twice: while you're cutting and laying up AND while you're burning it in the stove!

Not to mention sweeping up the mess every day ! Sure am glad of a fire on these cool evenings here.
