Cold, Eggs, Seeds and Chickens

It’s was a wonderful – 10 degrees last night.   It’s warmed up to a balmy 5 degrees at 8 am.   What?  My toes are blue?  They’re supposed to be that color.  Yeah… that’s it.

Someone please stew the groundhog.  Thanks.

We’re getting 7-9 eggs a day now.  “Full production” is 8-10 eggs.   Time change is next weekend, so I think we’ll be back at full then.   Time for the neighbors to receive their free weekly eggs again.  Once the eggs stop freezing before I can get to them, we’ll start selling.  🙂

I’m still waiting on the S.C. crowd to send me their warmth.

Just sayin’.

With one dog being ill, I haven’t had a chance to set up and start seeds, get down to the store to order meat chickens, or find out an estimate arrival date of the Nigerian.   Right now, I’m trying to get warm before calling the canine cardiologist. I don’t think he’d appreciate chattering teeth.  Well, he might, but then I’d have to charge per minute.

Btw, it’s amazing what bored goats will do to a barn when you’re an hour late getting out there to release them.  I have no idea how they got part of the roof ventilation (Spring install) off the loft which is about 8 feet off the ground.  I need to think about getting a LGD, so I can let them roam at night without worrying about coyotes and bob cats.

Hopefully, within the next few days I’ll be able to get the seed area set up and peppers and celery started.  Anyone else planting or have already planted?

  1. Hi from SC! On Sunday, it the high temp. was 73 degrees, the low was 55.
    Unfortunately yesterday it cooled down rapidly and started sleeting last night.
    Last night’s low temp was 23 degrees and the high today is 45. Ugh. 😉
