The days are getting longer, it starts to become more noticeable this time of year. I’m not the only one that notices, the chickens do too.

Every week they seem to add another egg to my daily collection. During the darkest days of winter I would find one egg, then there were two daily eggs, then three. Now I’m getting at least four eggs a day and sometimes as many as six.

What are some other things you notice changing as the days get longer?

Reading & Watching

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!


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.
