LEGAL

I am now legal to sell eggs to the restaurants in Chicago and yesterday the chickens laid almost three dozen eggs and the ducks laid sixteen eggs. They are taking a long time to get big though.

MORE BIRDS

I READ once that every millionaire has more than one avenue of income. Not putting all her eggs in one basket so to speak. Making a little money from a farm is not too hard but making a PROFIT is near impossible. And laughable…

EGGS GALORE

The chickens are supplying us with at least three dozen eggs a day sometimes more. One dozen a day goes to the pigs and the others are sold.  Last week I sold fifteen dozen eggs. The pigs had a few less though. This week Jake…

MY AIRBNB

I was taking photographs of the Kitchens Garden Retreat yesterday. My little airbnb apartment. I have guests coming in today, so while it looked so pretty, I thought I would take some shots and update the site.  I don’t mind if you have a look too….

AUNTY’S RICE SALAD

AUNTY’S BROWN RICE SALAD A great salad – the trick to this salad is adding the soy sauce and onions to the hot brown rice and letting them steam and soak and cool together. My sister first introduced this to me at New Years…

CROOKED BOTTOM

I had a chicken catcher visit yesterday. A young man who spent a couple of hours sneaking up on the runaway chickens catching them and returning them to the chicken coop. So to date there is only one (or maybe two) still wandering about…

Sulky pig

Lots of farmy pictures today. Tane was pleased I was home.  One piece of sorry business. Tima was her usual chubby happy self though she had had another miscarriage sometime during the night I arrived home. Only one baby, barely formed, as big as half my thumb.  But…

Red Hot Chili Eggs

No, we are not going to eat eggs with chili, that actually does not sound very nice at all. I fed the CHICKENS  the red hot chilis and look!  This is what happens when you feed the last of the chilis from the garden to the chickens…

SUN!!!

Yes! For the first time in Months, we had a sunny day all day. The whole day.  And tomorrow is the shortest day.  Oh JOY! Here is something I found on the internet. I don’t know what half that means. All that is really…

Eggs

Look at Sheila waiting quietly for her dinner while Poppy stomps about shrieking through all the dishes, making it impossible for me to retrieve them. Usually I have all the bowls out of their area before dinner time, but yesterday I forced myself to go to…

Custard Squares – Thank-Fully

Our darling Ronnie, who has been with The Fellowship for years now,  observed to me yesterday (In the comments lounge where all the best conversations of my day happen except the ones with Sheila of course) that my blog had changed over the course of time.  I used…
