|Trudy--the Jersey Giant who has yet to lay an egg|
Our easy-going Buff Orpington hen, Hilda, is fluffing back up after a pretty raggedy moult that started after Christmas and our shiny Black Australorp, Ginny, has been laying now since late January. The wild card and severely late bloomer, Trudy, actually seems to be looking like she might figure out she has a hen's job to do pretty soon as well.
|Hilda, our Buff Orpington who is on the upside after a late-Winter moult. Her comb and wattle are still a little muted and she's not quite back to laying yet.|
|Ginny--our Black Australorp has her shiny new post-moult fluff and she is up to laying about 4 big eggs a week.|
|Hyssop, Rosemary, Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower awaiting their new home in our garden.|
And, in the window sills, our tomato, pepper and eggplant seedlings are, hopefully, getting a solid start. We are tolerating the boxes and trays as part of our current decor in anticipation of a fat smattering of vegetables this summer. I'm always amazed how no matter how much planning and plotting I do during the winter, the first of March comes along and I already feel like I'm behind!
