First eggs . . .

September always feels like a new year for me. I guess from so many years of being a student. Things are starting up and there is a sense of fulfillment and anticipation. My chickens have laid their first eggs. It is so cool! Jesse, my lovely big GIRL, laid it right in front of me. "Look at me, I'm a hen, don't send me away or eat me!" The bottom three eggs, the first three, I blew out to save. I made scrambled eggs for lunch. Amazingly delicious! The rest will be made into deviled eggs.

Tomatoes, red and luscious, are waiting to be made into sweet chili sauce. Fall and winter seeds are sprouting, mustard greens and onions. And the roses are still blooming away.

Maybe today is a magical day.
