This and that

At this time of year our hibiscus is amazing. It is opposite the chicken run and towers over the chicken run height wise and has a mass of blooms.

Amazing hibiscus
A close up of the blooms

We picked one corn cob from the allotment today to see if they are ready and were stunned to see that it is just perfect.

And in chicken news Ebony started laying again five days ago and has laid three eggs since then. That’s two and a half weeks since she went broody.

Today Sugar has gone broody again after laying eight eggs in eleven days which seems to be her maximum. We had just four days of all the girls laying before Sugar went broody once more. Sigh!

      I think they are either broody girls or not. Sugar is worse than Smoke. Her average is eight eggs in under two weeks then she is off again. It’s ridiculous! xx

    YOUR SWEETCORN LOOKS AMAZING – bet the girls would love to get their beaks into that! (The non-broody ones, of course!)

      I think it’s the most perfect home grown one we have ever picked. I have cut it in half for us to have tonight. The girls would love it but they can have any not so good ones later on.
