New egg and long good-byes

new egg from fresh batch of Australorp pullets

We got our first egg today from the group we incubated and hatched back in the spring.

Feels like one of the signs of Summer starting its long goodbye as it coincided with the first morning it felt cold enough to wear long sleeves around here.

Thank you Summer....I know I sometimes complained about all the extra rain you brought this year, but I loved every wet minute of it and would like to take this moment to express my deep felt gratitude for the wonderful bounty we've already harvested. I look forward to seeing you again next year.
