It’s all about the eggs today or lack of.. My hens have been finicky lately and not laying so much. Ordinarily I don’t care much but this time of the year we are getting bombarded with things like zucchini from the garden and I look forward to saving the harvest to some extent with making and stocking up on zucchini breads. Looking forward to our newer hens to start laying in a month or so, but not soon enough. In the meantime I refuse to buy eggs!! So, look out friends with hens.. I may be found at your doorstep soon.
I’ve been in a funk with posting on my blog, so today I have promised myself even if I bore you to tears you will hear much more about what is going on at our Wampum Home.
Back to the lack of eggs. While planning my eggscapades I have resorted to Plan B. What is Plan B you ask.. it’s just a more exciting way of putting that I need to move on to the other end of garden season preserving.
Last night the beginning of picalilly was in order, this means cutting up a whole lot of green tomatoes, green peppers and a teary eyed onion or two. These all need to be chopped then mixed with a coarse kosher salt and sit overnight. I awoke to a beautiful ‘gardeny’ smell in the house this morning! yum! Now this whole mixture will sit in a strainer for a couple of hours whilst (like that word?) I start prepping the next batch. Now, I have warned you.. are you bored to tears yet? I promise to work on posting pics with this post, maybe make it less painful.
Come back for more soon 🙂 It’s certain to get better ???? And if you want to make my life a whole lot better, please comment and let me know what YOU would like on my blog.
