Farm Report 08-02-09; Flowers, July's Egg Count

I liked this rose dripping with dew the other morning, so I took photos:

We've had more summer rain and drizzle than usual this year.

It's been nice, because everything is still very green; the plants are loving it.

It's just starting to get dry now, and a bit dusty. That usually happens sooner, so the extra moisture was nice while it lasted. The water level in the well is dropping too, but slowly.

We've had plenty of flowers but the best is yet to come. I think we have more flowers in August than at any other time of the year. I always look forward to it.

Pat has more pictures of our summer flowers:

Blooms and bugs

Woolly pussies and other weeds and wildflowers

The Egg Count for July was as follows:

Pullets had 73 eggs, Bantams had 130, for a monthly total of 203. That's the same amount of eggs as last month. The yearly total is now 1,018.

End of Farm Report!
