Wild red Oregon plums seeds sprouting

So excited tonight because, the wild red Oregon plums seeds we foraged at the lake this summer are totally sprouting!   This means we can plant more native Oregon plum trees in our yard this coming spring.  Next summer is bound to be even more fruitful. The simple things in life are truly the best. Things like planting a tree then watching it grow fruit.

The chickens are laying three a day now

Really gratifying that the bok boks are now laying three eggs a day! It’s a great feeling to raise the chickens from baby chicks, to full grown hens that are making great fresh protein for the family daily. Each chicken has their own personality, and own unique shape to their egg.  I like taking care of them because it gets me outside, caring for them is pretty easy with our setup.
