This was our first year with chickens and out of the 5 gals, we are getting between 3-5 free range eggs per day! What a rewarding treat! Our vegetable gardens didn't do so well this year. My heirloom tomatoes (10 different varieties) did quite poorly. Our eggplants, herbs, zucchini, and squash did well though. I'm hoping to incorporate more organic practices next season and hope that we fare better. In some respects I did succeed in selling more of my pottery at the farmer's market this year! So all in all, I learned a lot and improved and I'd call it another successful year!
