Thanks everyoneI'm certainly a lot more active since moving here and I certainly feel a lot stronger physically. I think carrying lots of watering cans up a hill does that to you! I've certainly learnt as much as we put a lot of our selves into a garden, you can take that with you anywhere. A lot of the plants travelled with me,they are sort of old friends now.
The runners are doing really well, so has the beetroot. I had a egg and cucumber roll yesterday and it was the best I've ever tasted.
I have plenty of spare eggs! The girls have done so well. How different fresh eggs taste compared with the supermarket.
I didn't name them, the chickens,not the eggs well apart from one, who is called Corky as she has tail feathers that reminded me of a corkscrew. She is the only one that I can tell apart from the others.I like to think that she is the boss, as I think she is the that one sleeps in the nest box.
My nan had chickens too,they are great to keep. She had little bantoms at one point which perched in the trees even in the wildest weather
