Gardening in Southwest Washington State. Aiming for good food, sustainability, diversity, ecological balance. Learning from tradition, science, experience, and experimentation. Growing fruits, vegetables, trees, and flowers. Growing from seeds, cuttings, divisions, and grafting. Puttering meditation.

The hens had stopped producing, so we fired up the light timer in their hen house. Now they are on 14 hours days again, and producing eggs. The white egg is from a leghorn. Small hen, big eggs. I bet that one hurt. The smallest is from an Ameraucana. This is her first egg. Most of the rest are Rhode Island Red or mixed heritage hens.
