gather and grow

Homegrown, hand-spun living in the city

eggOur ladies have been taking a winter break from laying eggs. But in the last few days, we’ve heard suspiciously familiar sounds from the direction of the chicken coop, as though they were starting to remember the whole egg-laying business again, and to rehearse the unmistakable proud yodle with which they greet every new egg. So we’ve been checking the nesting boxes more regularly, and this is what I found there this morning. Thanks, girls — just in time for my homemade mayonnaise experiments!

It’s all the stages of the cycle going on simultaneously… I like that image.
