Countdown to Turkeys

June 9th, 2015

Our turkey hen has been sitting on turkey eggs for almost four weeks now. Of course she’s supposed to be hatching them out while I’m supposed to be gone.

Mr Chiots has strict instructions to monitor closely and take pictures if necessary. Of course it could end up being nothing, turkeys are notorious for not being good at fertilizing eggs.

Are you eagerly anticipating anything at the moment?

    Turkey poults are the cutest poultry babies. I hope you have a good hatching.

    Susy, I’m anticipating that first juicy bite of tomato. The plants have set some tomatoes and the cherry tomatoes are starting to turn orange so it won’t be long before the tomato flush will begin. It just isn’t summer time until that tomato juice from the first tomato is running down the chin. The cucumbers are up and growing as well as green beans. Garden life is good on the west bank of the Nebraska Missouri river.

    Have a great turkey hatching anticipation day.

    I visited a petting zoo with my little nephews and we watched a turkey lay an egg. The keeper gave it to us (to eat) but we popped it in the incubator and it’s alive (& kicking). Hopefully in 9 days or so we will get a little poult who will grow up to think they are one of our chickens.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
