Its week 19 of our garden and we finally harvested our wonky cauliflower and second crop of broccoli.
It was the perfect amount to feed the family for dinner.
Though it wasn’t the prettiest or largest cauliflower ever, it had weird long shoots, and some brown spots.
But with our super wet and cold winter this year we didn’t have the best garden. Though it has taught me a lot about the vegetables and I probably should have picked these a week or two ago. The sun causes the browning, which is why we covered them with the outer leaves and rubber bands. But they were covered for so long that the weird shoots starting growing towards the sunlight. Lesson learned. Though they sure did taste great!
We also have other exciting new on the farm (its feeling more and more like one everyday).
DT brought home 2 Ameracauna chicks, and 2 ducklings not sure of the breed.
I am so excited (about the chicks) in about 20 or so weeks we will have blue or green eggs from our two chicks (a lifelong dream of mine).
Aren’t they cute?
But not nearly as cute as the ducks.
I will admit I was sort of mad at DT for getting the ducks, they weren’t part of the plan and what the H*ll are we going to do with two ducks?
But then I looked closer at them with their cute webbed feet and little nubby wings, and sweet little bills, and I figure we can make a little room for them.
The boys on the other hand we expectantly excited!! And couldn’t wait to get their hands on the new crew.
But don’t worry they were gentle with them.
And tonight we have set them up their own safe and secure boxed in cage with a heat lamp and plenty of food and water.
I just went to check on them and they are best of buds laying together sweetly cuddled up.
This will be fun! I am being positive.
