Random 5 Friday - 04/12/2013

This week's post is pretty durn random! Let's see...

1.  One of the hens went broody so I put four eggs under her on Monday. Tuesday morning, I marked them and checked on her. Tuesday evening, there was another egg so I marked it differently. She was fine with no extra eggs Wednesday morning and evening and Thursday morning. Thursday evening, one of the eggs was half eaten so I evicted her. The dog was happy!

2.  We put bird netting over the three dwarf fruit trees yesterday. They all have a lot of fruit starting and we are hoping to actually get a harvest this year.

3.  I'm looking forward to the Farmer's Market tomorrow. The weather is supposed to be GREAT! My baked goods have been selling really well lately and my goal is to completely sell out one of these weeks.

4.  The neighbor lady cancelled her trash service and has been just piling it up on her front porch. With our big winds earlier this week, most of it ended up in our yard and pasture. Grrrr...

5.  Today is Jerry's birthday!! :) He got a pretty sedate cake this year, German Chocolate. If you would like to see the horse cake I made him last year go here.


Linking up with Nancy for Random 5 Friday.

I am impressed with your farmer's market forays. What a lot of work on the baking!

My neighbors manage to let a surprising amount of their trash blow onto our property and they HAVE pickup. I don't get what's so hard about keeping it contained. You're right, it IS annoying.

Random is sometimes the most informative! Love the cake - and sorry to hear the broody hen was an egg eater. But it sounds like the dog was pleased with her eviction!

Those silly hens -- mine think they want to set for awhile, then leave after a day or so. No willpower! :)

That cake is amazing. Yum!

German chocolate cake is my favorite! Just wondering how much bread you bake for your Farmers Market. Do you make it the day of or the day before? I am thinking of baking for the market this year.
Thanks!

Love the looks of the cake, looks really good. And happy late birthday Jerry!!

Marie said...

Happy late birthday, Jerry! Love that yummy German chocolate cake!!!! And the horse cake you made last year was wonderful!

Great Random 5! Hope you do get some fruit this year! You'll have to explain to me about the chicken. I adore them as you know, but know very little about them. I assume you have a rooster??? Or maybe she was getting broody over eggs with no babies in them? Do you recommend rooster or no rooster?

Paula said...

@ Marie, hens are happy to lay eggs whether you have a rooster or not. It's more if you want to breed them. Roosters can be hard on the hens.
