Is she or isn't she?

We can't figure out if Jemima is trying to brood or not. She sat on her eggs all Monday morning and we figured she was definitely trying to hatch them. But, since then, we haven't caught her sitting at all. Perhaps she does overnight and that's enough warmth for them to hatch. Who knows. Geese are very strange creatures.

Ds#1 swore Peep, one of our Buff Orpington chickens, is getting broody, but since we haven't seen Nick (our new rooster) mating with any of the hens, we will assume none of the eggs are fertile and therefore not worth trying to hatch.

Dh finally got a bunch of seeds planted, including spinach and lettuce. It's been a busy spring for him. I miss eating fresh spinach.
