Did You Know?

The average hen lays 260 eggs per year! That would leave us with 780 eggs with our three ladies - that's alot of omelets! This adorable Farm Anatomy Dishtowel also came with a cute cheat sheet on a fresh vs. old egg. Helpful when you have a refrigerator bursting with them!

April Garden

This Spring has been a busy one at 765. It hasn't allowed much time for projects around the house,  though we have managed to keep up with the garden. Back in February we planted rows of seeds and crossed our fingers the heavy rains and volatile temperatures wouldn't crush our garden dreams. Thanks to our potent compost, far more than what we planted actually sprouted. We have 25 tomato plants (where we'll find space for them all I'm not quite sure), one of which managed to last through the Winter and is giving us an early supply of fruit. So far it's looking to be a productive season.
