Back in the Swing

At least I'm trying to get back in the swing of things.

School starts next Wednesday, I have to start work next Tuesday.  But I spent a few hours in my classroom yesterday and today, and will come in tomorrow.  Got to get my head around that place again.

One of our chickens eats eggs.  Got any good solutions?

We've been eating tons of great food out of the garden.  And taking no pictures and sharing none of it with you.  Think zucchinis, yellow summer squash, kale, beans, broccoli, tomatoes, strawberries, and cabbage.

We went to a fun wedding this last weekend, outside at a camp, with lots of friends, all weekend long.  Maybe I can round up some pictures soon to share.

Lucy keeps getting attacked by Gil, our yellow duck.  He's developed quite the personality lately.  Lucy is scared of him, which is quite hilarious considering he can run underneath her easily.  Don't worry, it doesn't hurt her at all.  But it might just be video camera worthy.

We canned nectarines and didn't take any pictures.  It was hot and we were cranky.  They look almost exactly like the peaches, so go back and look at that picture if you need to.  But I do have some good jam and preserve recipes to share. 

It's been a good summer, now to just cram in a few last fun, relaxing moments before it ends.  And probably a few last projects too.

My neighbor blows out eggs and puts cayenne pepper in them. The chicks won't do that more then once. I have had a few eaten but it's just because they accidentally break them then eat them. If it was all the time we would have chicken for dinner...
