Harvest..Tuesday

Here is what I harvested today. The ducks really outdid themselves and here is another batch of spinach. This spinach is from the raised bed but the spinach in the lower garden only has another week or so before it will be ready for its first picking. There is one strawberry in there (which I ate and it was SO good!) and 3 bantam eggs with the duck eggs on the table.
I also got 3 quail eggs today! I have been getting one a day for the last couple days. I will save for one more day or two then put them in the incubator along with a few more bantam eggs.

Here is the best picture I could get of the pyncheon mama and her two babies. They don't exactly hold still and pose.

  3. I like that. There is a lot to be said about raising your own food.

  5. I've never seen quail eggs, but they sure look different than what my girls bless me with daily. Nice!

  6. These are corturnix quail that lay these. If they were bobwhite they would have a white egg. When I'm not hatching them I like to make quail eggs into pickled eggs. It is nice to have a pickled egg that you can just pop in your mouth like a snack.
