French Hubby, Monsieur and Me

Monsieur the RoosterMonsieur was attacked almost two weeks ago. Two of his hens were never to be seen again. We couldn’t just leave him to die. So a quick trip trip to the vet to determine just how serious his under wing wound was. Quite. That said, he has been a trooper and he has been convalescing in the basement for almost two weeks (in a dog cage with a hand made roost). Monsieur¬†lets us pick him up and administer pain meds and antibiotics. Here he is being held by French hubby as I give him a sponge bath to clean him up in preparation for his return to the ladies. We’re planning on letting him back in tomorrow or the next day. Stay tuned.

They were not as big as I had hoped. I thought they may have had some kind of problem as the leaves were black and spotted, but in the end, they are lovely. All 150 organic heads of them!Garlic from my garden. Organic.

The garden is planted.  Everything is growing. I have been watering like crazy. I am already fighting cucumber, japanese and potato beatles. This morning I picked lovely lavender and scapes. Scapes and lavender
