Fall has arrived to Virginia. We and our animals are loving the cooler temperatures, and although most of our older hens have quit laying due to the shorter days and molting, the new spring chicks are laying up a storm. We've been collecting some gorgeous Marans eggs all week.
The highlight of the week definitely was the blueberry pie that my visiting father-in-law baked for us using blueberries he picked from his farm up in Maine. We sent him off with a dozen fresh eggs as a thank you!
The cold crop garden is flourishing and we've harvested some romaine and spinach already and are looking forward to more greens for us and the ducks in the coming weeks. Enjoy a peek at our week.
