DECEMBER 2011 - Harvest Tally and Molting birds

This marks the eleventh month of our mini-farm adventure and boy, it's cold out here.

Not much to harvest at this point, thank god for our feathered friends. They are staring to go into molt, so there were not that many eggs either. Birds need sun and warmth to lay eggs. If it is too cold, they won't lay. This is also the season when they renew their feathers. And yes, they do look a tad scrunchy, so I will spare you pictures of my sad looking girlies.

Here is the harvest tally for December 2011:
5 lbs of zucchini

A total 5 lbs of produce and 39 duck and 36 chicken eggs.
