    are those pics of your garden this year? How are your tomato plants so huge so early?! impressive. Also, cute chickens... your Buff EE looks exactly like one of mine from MM this year, only mine has really huge muffs/beard.

    Quote:If it doesn't freeze and you can keep them wet enough during June, July and August, you can grow them year round. Some of my tomatoes are HUGE... I should have taken pics of those... just waiting for them to get orange enough to pic. If I wait till they are red the birds (ie: sparrows, doves and crows) tear them to pieces.

    Quote:As labled... LBLH... Light Brown Leghorn.

    She used to lay a nice glossy white egg every other day.. Now I'm lucky if I get one a week from here. May have to sell her or rehome her or make her stew.
