Tiny little green faces of spring...

Monday, April 6, 2009

We've been prepping the garden for planting this spring... and starting some of our plants indoors from seed... we have tiny little green faces of spring all over my kitchen. They're such happy little things... and they make me happy to see them coming up through the soil in the trays!

We've also had a lot of egg cleaning on the farm lately. "The ladies" have started laying more due to the warmer temperatures and the growing greens and abundance of bugs. That all makes for VERY happy "ladies". Grace really does help with the whole process... she helps collect the eggs, brings them in to the fridge, and helps clean and package the eggs. Yeah, we've had a few broken eggs in the process (Daddy's guilty of this as well...), but it's a great lesson for Grace - especially since all the proceeds from the egg farm go to a savings account for her (and the little one on the way). Sometimes we work her so hard that she's ready for some rest after all that cleaning and packaging!
Hope we're not breaking any child labor laws! HA!!
