Ginger has been sitting and sitting and sitting. Since producing her first two eggs, she hasn't produced another one. I can TELL that she's got one cooking, because her abdomen is so full, but she just doesn't seem ready yet. Doesn't stop her from trying, though. She's in the box all the time.

These are mostly broccoli and cauliflower and cabbage here. Other trays have tomatoes and flowers, but they are not as far along.
And yes, in case you were wondering, I do other things than manual labor and playing with animals. I completed my first pineapple doily the other day, and put it under a stoneware chicken in the kitchen (because every kitchen should have a stoneware chicken, don't you know?).
