Wet Hens in a Wet Winter
Welcome to 2020! With rain, more rain, some hail, and a distinct lack of snow. The hens are tolerating it well, mainly since no snow pack means they still get out for recess so they can find those spots of green grass and the wet soggy soil means a lot of bugs and grubs are trying to escape upwards out of the deluge (if they aren't frozen in lower down).
At least the microgreens grow happily in their inside lighted suite, unbothered by the cool or damp. You can get them and some eggs this Friday between 12-1230 at Fireman's Park parking lot to help celebrate the new year and help you with any resolutions you might be trying to keep! Nothing like fresh, local veg and eggs packed with good for you nutrients and good for you taste!
The ducks are the messiest there are. With their big feet that squishes the dirt and mud, and their bills that slap in the water bowls and splash it all out, they always create a muddy (and eventually frozen) mess. A little straw goes a long way, even if it doesn't last for long, in making the mud navigable.
I do have to admit that I am to blame as well since I give them extra water bowls to splash and play in but they could just splash it into the bowl and not out. Just sayin'.
What's available this week?
Where to find it all?
The winter egg/microgreen delivery is every Friday from 12-1230pm at the Fireman's Park Parking Lot. I'll be there rain, snow, shine, or freeze!
