Pecky Sue, the Rhode Island Red shown in the background of the above picture, is giving us an egg a day. So far she is the only bird laying. The Girls (also known as the City Chicks) are loving the cooler weather we’ve been having. They spent a large portion of Labor Day out and about in the garden.
After many, many days of over 100+ degree temperatures which left me neglecting the garden, we finally had some temps that inspired us to get out and clean up the garden. We harvested peanuts and pulled many plants. Soon, we will be putting in the fall garden. We are so very thankful for the much cooler temperatures these past few days.
Most of the garden boxes have been pulled and are awaiting some seeds for the fall but we do have a few things that stood up to the high temps we’ve had this summer:
After the hottest summer that I can ever remember, we have finally had temps down in the 80s. It has been heavenly! Labor Day was so nice that we opened all the windows and left the air conditioner off for most of the day. It makes me want to decorate for fall…love it!
Now it is time for us to plant some fall crops and some fruit trees. We are also waiting to see which City Chick will be the next egg layer.
There’s always something fun happening at the Little White House Farm!
