A Week or Two in Pictures (3/4 – 3/12)

The past couple of weeks have been busy! The weather has been halfway decent (up until this week) so Robb and I were able to get out in the yard. In between our yard work and housework, we made it a point to go see “Logan” in theaters (review) and I was able to make a pie in honor of Pi Day (recipe).

Since I love looking at pictures more than reading text sometimes, I thought I would make this primarily a photo post!

Robb readied his part of the garden for broccoli and kale which we planted Saturday afternoon (I think).

Broccoli plugs purchased from a local small business – they had just arrived that day and looked so nice and fresh.

I started my pepper plants back in February – they are looking so good! I’ve never had such a high germination rate for peppers.

My slightly messy looking beds – garlic is planted in one, onions in the other. The dogs, for some reason, like walking through my beds the most.

I got up close and personal with my girls.

I was gifted with 4 duck eggs at the Edenton Farmer’s Market. I’ve never cooked with duck eggs before but am debating a nice cake or custard maybe.

One thing not pictured is the new chicken I picked up on Saturday. She’s a Silver Laced Wyandotte (I named her Ipsy) that’s just starting to lay. She has a huge bald spot on her back from being bullied but I know that her feathers will grow back soon. She’s still checking things out in the coop but so far, everyone is getting along decently well. I’ll post of picture of her soon, once the weather warms up again and I can spend more time in the coop.

A Week In Review.

All cell phone pictures on this post. I know, I know. The quality of my cell phone pictures truly suck, but when I’ve been pet sitting all week and my good camera is at home, I have to make do with what is on my phone. I have some photos from the weekend that I will upload when I’m finally home.

My first REAL plant sale - two Early Girls and two tomatillos.

One of the tomatillos that I did actually sell looks like a husk is already forming.

My egg! This is the 6th egg we've gathered from the chickens since we put them in the coop the last Sunday in March. I found this one all on my own! On Easter Sunday no less.

My first plant sale! Okay, it doesn't really count since they are for my mom and she didn't pay, but hey - it's something.
