Every morning when I let the chickens out of their henhouse,
the roosters have one (and only one) thing on their mind!
They frantically chase the hens around, hoping one will oblige.
I've watched my hens adapt to this behavior in a very interesting way....
they get out of the way....way out!
Yes, these smart gals take to the trees to escape the amorous roos.
Pretty smart, yes?
The ducks, on the other hand are not proving to be very smart this Spring.
Some of them have been laying eggs in the pond.
I am guessing that last year's ducklings have begun laying eggs.
I suspect that a few of them don't realize what is happening...
and drop their eggs while they are swimming.
So, every morning I am fishing water-logged eggs out of the pond.
(and tossing them!)
We are still in the throws of Spring weather...temps in the 70's by afternoon.
I am having a blast...early gardening!
The dogs....well, they always have fun....
I thought I would share an idea with you...
an idea that I found on that wonderfully delicious, albeit time-wasting, website "Pinterest".
Did you know that if you put the very end of a stalk of celery in water...
that you will grow a new stalk of celery???
Once it grows roots it will be planted in soil.
This grows so fast you can almost see it growing in front of your eyes.
At the price of organic celery, you can get 2 for 1!
