MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
HELLO & welcome to Garden Daddy here at the urban farm! So sorry there have not been postings this holiday season but due to some computer issues I am still laying low on daily computer use. But I could not let the day pass without wishing all of you a VERY VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
I must share with you that this garden home has won 2nd place in the city-wide Jackson Beautiful Holiday Lights for my mid-town area! I did not know it was even going on but was voted by call ins to the local paper, The Jackson Sun: http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/jacksonsun/access/2219358481.html?FMT=FT&FMTS=ABS:FT&type=current&fmac=25fd50c58792390b235beb3ec27ff3d3&date=Dec+22%2C+2010&author=JACQUE+HILLMAN&desc=City+announces+winners+of+Holiday+Beautiful+contest
Just to update on the progress of chickens and their laying in these cold days...I did a good thing by choosing good, hearty winter layers as I have been getting anywhere from 10 to 14 eggs from some 17-pullets this year so far. I could not be more pleased.
So I leave you this lovely holiday with our ongoing affirmation in mind: "URBAN FARMING: ONE EGG AT A TIME!"
