Lots of calls/requests for eggs this week-- 5 to be exact. I guess the egg recall is at least helping me out. And I was just about ready to thin my flock as I had more supply than demand.

Zucchini and tomato sauce in back and bread and butter pickles in the front. They are upside down because that's how you get them to seal if they aren't sealing. Yes, somehow I find the time to can as well. I'm really fast at it now.

Everyone milked except me. I stood there and took pictures or I held the goat still while she was milked. I know how these things go. The kids will want to milk the goats for the first month and then I'll get all the chances I want to milk. It looks kind of fun and relaxing.

This watermelon didn't really have all the 'signs' of a ripe watermelon but I picked it anyway because I just had to see inside. It was perfect. Of course I picked another and it was not perfect. So trial and error and I'll get the watermelon picking down as well.

But in terms of success-- see that pretty stars and moons watermelon? I have lots of lopes, honeydew melons and watermelons growing nicely. I check them every few days and they are still steadily growing. I'm very, very excited as I've never been able to grow cantalopes before!
The peppers also look gorgeous. The zucchini is starting to exhaust itself though I've got another shorter 2 rows that are started for a second crop.
