Eggs and Seedy Saturday

I am excited to say that everyday this week I found at least one egg from our chickens. As of yet I have not eaten any yet though. I found one just now while feeding the animals, the chicken had laid it in the food container. I think that will be the first one I eat mostly because we usually find the eggs after they have been out for a while and they tend to be frozen and very dirty. This one is clean and not frozen. Which I say makes it an excellent candidate for my stomach.
I also wanted to mention that tomorrow is seedy Saturday. If you haven't heard of it, it is an excellent opportunity to brush up on gardening skills and pick up some terrific seeds for your summer gardens. I will post the information at the end of the blog.
Sunday (our lamb) is doing terrifically and feels that he should be allowed out and about even if it is a freezing cold evening. He is full of energy and always trying to eat hay and drink water. I would say he is also much more friendly than our lambs last year. He will come up to you and you can pet him. He seems to like attention!
Also this week we finalized our seed list and starting sending out our orders. I believe Ryan is very much looking forward to publishing our seed list so I will leave that up to him!
