My turn for a mystery egg. After I gathered 3 eggs after work, I was moving some piping closer to the garden in preparation to use as tomato poles, when I spotted an egg in the outside run.
This egg is almost white it is so light. Not small. I haven't had one this color before.
Also I turned off the heater, one heat light and the white light tonight in the chick house. It was over 80 because it was 80 outside today. When I turned off the white light the chicks instantly lay down and went to sleep. It was like group narcolepsy.
I took a peek at my grow box and this is what I saw.....
According to the Old Farmers Almanac I will be able to plant my tomatos on March 7 as the prime planting date per the moon cycle. The squash are not up yet but they will be out on March 26. I know I am late with snow peas but I will still give them a try. The sugar snap peas outside are doing ok but not as good as the snow peas in the box.
Right now I need to plant broccoli, lettuce, I MISSED THE POTATO DATE!! (kind of...I am still in the window), spinach, and swiss chard. I had better get after building new raised beds. I believe I need at least 5 more.
March 7 I will be planting tomatos, pumpkins, cucumbers, and beans.
It is dry so far this spring. That could change next week but I am going to get a run of gutter and some rain barrels and start collecting rain off of the hen house. I suspect a dry year. We will need to mulch heavily.
