    The Good Life was one of my favourite programmes. Did you see the one where Tom hurt his back and Margot(the posh lady nextdoor) helped? She used a colander tied on a stick to individually lift each potato! Every now and again they are repeated. I never tire of watching them.

    The garden is starting to look a bit sad. Autumn is just around the corner so I'll be harvesting the last of the summer crops soon. Egg production has slowed down a bit and the youngsters are coming up to 6weeks old. I think I have 2 Roosters and 3 hens. It is funny seeing the two little Roos squaring up to each other like mini prize fighters.

    Hey there, How's things? I'll have oodles of green tomatoes this year, I seem to recall you mentioning a way to freeze them. Could you let me know?

    Helloo! I've sent you a friendship request. How's the garden?

    Hey yourself! First of all there's $1.50 to 1.00.
    There's some serious money paid for birds over here. Because a certain celebrity chef got into keeping chickens at home, it's become the lastest fashion. As a result breeders know they can charge what they want and people will pay it. Unfortunately it also affects the genuine backyard keeper like me. My last three hybrids cost 15.00 each. One of them goes broody each year so last year she hatched off 8 birds of a meat breed. The fertile eggs were 16 for a dozen including postage. This year I got 6 Light Sussex priced at 8.00($12) and she hatched 5 off. Any Cockerels will go in the freezer.
    Honestly Old Trap, and the other guys will tell you this, I'd give my right arm to move to the US. I'm sick fed up of being ripped off because backyard farming is fashionable. I reckon I pay at least twice what you pay for anything to do with gardening, preserving and poultry!A for instance is canning jars. I pay 1.50, that's $2.25 per pint jar!
    So that site is not the cheapest, neither is it the most expensive!

    All's fine, thanks for asking. Weather is great and Alaska turns into a Paradise when the sun comes out! It is going to be another week or two before King Salmon start running and I get really busy. I check in when I wake up in the morning just have too much to do to spend much time online. I will probably be taking pictures most of summer and then post them next winter when the topics comes up and I have more time.

    If you ever come over to Georgia, be sure to bring some of your wife's desserts!
