the help

I found these little coveralls at our local work wear store ..
and just couldn't resist getting them to match the farmer.

He gives them very important work to do.

Once he has them understanding how much nicer the eggs look in matching stacks ..

 . ..they set to work organizing.

Sure. .the work is tedious ..
but the farmer doesn't mind.

My job is to keep an eye on the help . . .
their job is to help ..
and the farmers job is to think of new tasks.

Someday they'll know they were played with.

When they get big enough to gather eggs themselves. .
they'll be shocked that the colors really don't matter much.

In the meantime. .
everyone is happy helping the farmer.

I'm happy the farmer doesn't mind the help.. .
and every time I see these pictures. .
I think . .
that the help should come again soon.

all for now...


  1. What a sweet post. Love the overalls. One day they will smile at how you fooled them...and they will get you back:) They will also enjoy all the neat posts you did of the along the way. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Trying to figure out why the colors don't a fung Shiu disorder sufferer, I will be tormented to think eggs are routinely placed in trays Willy-nilly colorwise. Ack!

    Your grands are so stinking cute!

  3. Aren't they cute! "Helping" and learning their colours too. Very smart grandma!

  4. That is so great! Love the coveralls and "the help"

  5. I agree with Kathy. Oh, and the work ethic they are learnin and the experience they are getting is wonderful...priceless.

  6. That kind of help is always welcome.

  7. Oh how unforgettable...helping grandpa with the cutest work wear!

  8. You know what this does to me when I read this post? It makes me wish we lived on a farm. Many times I wish we had small jobs like this to keep them busy. Great post! Love the seriousness of it all, on their faces.

  9. I love it! They will have such good memories of the times their help was required on the farm.

  10. They look like they are so proud of themselves! And they are so deligent!

  11. I love it! You have the very best help....and how do you know that it doesn't matter, at some level, to the hens?
    Good to see that everyone, even Grandma, has a job!

  12. They all look like such sweet and willing helpers! Oh the things you can have them do...

  13. Those are the best photos...they look so cute in their little outfits...and of course, who really cares, about the color, but someday they will realize how efficient one can be by stacking the eggs rather than stacking them into colors, but for now...they understand this the best. Real cute post.
