I live with my husband on a small homestead in Northern Minnesota. Our daughter currently lives in a small cabin in the woods not too far from us.
Our place is located outside a small town and a two and a half hour's drive from the nearest big city. Trips to the city are infrequent, well-planned, and exhausting!
We currently raise chickens and have hives of honey bees. Raising some of our meat and most of our fruits and vegetables is a priority for us; so, along with our birds for meat and eggs, we have fruit trees, berry patches and a huge vegetable garden.
Quilting is my passion, and I could happily spend each day in my quilt studio if I weren't happily spending each day out in the garden. Good thing we have winters up here; Mother Nature helps keep my life balanced.

Have a particular posting or topic in mind? Want to find that post Mama Pea wrote about her blueberry bushes or a recipe? If so . . . .
Haha, that is too funny!!
Would that one even have hatched???
Maybe she's saving up for an extra large egg today?
:) very funny.
Morning, Ladies - Although we do have a couple of bantam hens that lay eggs smaller than the regular sized hens do, this peewee egg was much smaller than a bantam's. We get one like this once in a blue moon but I don't think it would have much of a chance of ever developing a chick. Usually, if you crack it open, it doesn't have a correctly developed yolk and white.
Fiona, if she is saving up for an extra large egg today, I'll bet she'll decide after laying the whopper (ouch) that wasn't a very good plan! ;o)
Awwww! Isn't it cute!
what a cute little egg!
Hi, Jody and Ruthie - The little egg was so petite I was trying to think of a way I could have "preserved" it. I guess I could have tried to blow out the innards and keep the shell. Shoulda done that!
