This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

fried fresh eggs for breakfast

fried eggs 049 We went with fried eggs, easy over, for breakfast yesterday. We noticed that the yolks were deeper orange in color than our usual store bought eggs. Also, the whites held together more. I thought they taster richer, but my husband thought they just tasted like eggs.

In the past 6 days, my three hens laid 8 eggs. Not bad. egg in a bowl 030

They look delicious! For some reason Summer has just popped into my head and I thought of a lovely french style fresh picked summer leaf salad with bacon lardons, a good dressing and a poached egg on top. I think with your garden plans and the Chooks, you are going to enjoy some great food this year!

Those eggs look really nice! I have been getting eggs from a farm on the edge of the city for a while now. I notice the yolks taste a lot better then caged birds.

I say that home-raised chickens are definitely superior in egg taste. Funny how that works but I suppose life is a lot less stressful over all and the food pretty priveleged! Your eggs look lovely.
