Well, we pulled the green bean plants and pulled the beans off the plants. I was left with 7 quarts of beans to can and 2 quarts to cook up for our dinner tomorrow. I also cut the Swiss Chard and put two quart packages in the freezer. I took all the leftover scrap chard out to the chickens and they loved it. While I was out there I checked for eggs and oh my!! Ophelia is all grown up! She is now laying. It's a beautiful tiny egg. I'm a very proud momma!! Hannah has been checking out the nesting boxes too so I figure she's next. I've got to say, the chickens have been such a treat for me. I really thought that maybe it wouldn't work out but now that I have them, I can't imagine not having them to feed and water everyday. I can only assume it taps into my need to care and be responsible for something that depends fully on me. I don't know but it has been a good thing.
Below are some pics of our garden and there should be more on my Pictures page.
