I can’t think of one.
And on Friday we pick all the egg plant and thyme and capsicums – sell those. The eggs are selling well still but I am still having trouble with dirty eggs, free range chickens have this draw back.
WaiWai does not like to be patted all the time but will follw me just about anywhere.
Time to get up and get these birds in their boxes and onto the truck.
Remember about looking your dinner in the eye? I wrote about this once. But I cannot find the post. I believe that if you are going to eat meat you need to be very honest with yourself about where that meat came from and it’s life before it became your dinner. These guys had a pretty good life in perfect deep green alfalfa. I know many of you will chastise me saying “How do you do it. I could never take my chickens off to slaughter.” But I am no tougher than you. I would just rather eat meat whose providence I am sure of.
And if you have chosen to eat meat as part of your diet then I think it is important to be able to look your dinner in the eye and say Thank You. It is old fashioned and honest.
It is cloudy and dark this morning but hot and sticky.
Later today we divide up the middle sized pigs by size and put them into separate fields. That will be fun!
I hope you have a lovely day.
NEWSLETTER DAY: Today about 2pm (central time) with the help of Samantha – my personal web assistant – I will post the TEST newsletter. STAND BY! I don’t think I will ever feel totally ready, both the shops will be works in progress FOREVER but it is time for me to make the jump, then start work on the August Newsletter. July has been held up for too long!
