This week we hit a high point… the chooks are suddenly laying eight eggs a day! It has been crepes, omelettes and egg salad sandwiches all round at our place lately. Our grapefruit is now ripe for the picking, so I took a basketful to our local food swap and walked away with some great veggie gardening tips, some heirloom tomato seed, and some beautiful Meyer lemons, oranges and potatoes. It seems my cow poop is also in high demand. Would it be weird to take manure to a food swap? Seems it may go down even better than the grapefruit!
Here’s what I’ve seen at our place this week.
