I had already included so many photos in this post that I had to leave a few out, but I can’t resist a small PS. Every time the garden blog crowd meets, people bring stuff to share. I only had boring old seeds (poppies and calendulae) that nobody wanted, but that didn’t stop me from snapping up some of what was on offer, which does seem a little unfair…
Lucky me, I came home with a slew of eggs from Molly’s lovely feathered ladies (my daughter reserved and ate the little greenish one), plums from Aerie-el’s Italian Prune harvest, and a head of garlic from Paula’s patch. Thanks, gals!
Haven’t tried the plums or garlic yet, but do have to say that the eggs cooked up into the best scrambled eggs we’d eaten, EVER.
I’ve been kind of, well, chicken about getting a few fowl, but I might have to find space for a coop someday and just deal with the occasional unpleasantness (raccoon raid, heat-wave-related keelings-over, manure smell) just to have eggs like that every day. Mmmmmm.
