    eggs are popping early. Looks like some will hatch on day 20.

    I planted yellow squash, zucchini, and cucumbers today after work. The squash and zukes were from last year so I planted extra planning for poor germination.

    Still have alot to plant and alot of Wood chips to move and more trees need bought and planted. But I'm sore as heck and it's dark. Tomorrow is another day!

    Yay on chicks! I planted yellow squash and zuch's last weekend. The zucchini is up but the yellow squash isn't....yellow squash seeds were old. I'll replant those when I can get into the mud pit...I mean the garden, lol

    Yay for chicks! I need to plant zucchini and cucumbers as well, but with the weather so unpredictable at the moment, I decided to wait a bit.

    well I had a whole bunch of pipping but no zipping. I knew the humidity got off just a little bit but I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. Guess I'll let em ride till Monday and then reload the darn incubator.

    It's been about 13 hours now since you said they pipped? They can take up to 18 hours to get going and zipping, so keep the humidity bumped and :fl
