right now

Every day we have a lovely breakfast. We are lucky enough to get cream line milk, and we use a cup to pull the cream out and get it into a delicious cup of coffee. The jar of yellow is butter, from the same batch of milk. Homer adds salt, but I love it sweet.

Eggs are in abundance, and we are enjoying them every day. Over easy with runny yolks..

And we go through the seed packages, decide what food crop and corresponding friend crop needs to go in and be planted.

Cows, pigs, chickens and egg layers are moving daily. Grass is growing like crazy. We are working to get the trailer inspected so we can get more cattle here to keep the grass down. Planning and weeding. In another 3-4 weeks we will begin processing poultry 2-3 days per week, so that we can deliver fresh. At the same time we will pick and deliver vegetables several days each week. Eggs are already being delivered. The farmers market in Hershey will start. Coolers need bleaching, vegetable boxes need clearing and cleaning. Weeding some more. Keeping an eye out for birds and what they are eating, covering if needed. Water and rain monitoring of vegetables, livestock and farmers. Early to bed, early to rise. Cold frame emptied, transplanted, refilled with seeds. Try and remember all that needs doing..
