Rain and Chook Pens
I have finally finished the blanket for our number one and only son. I have been plodding along using up wool I bought on special and then didn’t really know what to do with. Just a little addicted. All I have to do tie off all the ends and then I will do a small border around it with the remaining black and purple wool, it has already been used though and considered comfortable and warm.
One of the three big chicks, Caramel, has started laying and we have been getting some soft shelled eggs. They are getting the hard shell covering more and more, and they are perfectly good inside. The other two big chicks, Snowbunny aka Fluffybunny and Alanamy, can’t be far behind, they all look like good layers because they are big hens.
Well, I had best get on with completing the blanket and I am going to do some cooking seeing it is a rainy day today. Think I am going to make some Dahl in the slow cooker to have with whatever we have tonight and maybe a cake, cake is good.
ON OTHER MATTERS
Monsanto is obviously the topic of conversation at the moment as I keep coming across articles about them. This one was put up on the Simple Savings Forum on a thread about GM foods, Scientists warn EPA on Monsanto corn rootworm
This next one came in with my emails, Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide found to destroy testosterone, male fertility
To finish on a happier note than Monsanto, African Aussie always posts such beautiful photos and this post is no different,gotta love all those pinks :)
