There Really is an App for Everything!

This really made us laugh- there is an app to help you select the best chicken breed for your situation. The ultimate in urban farming!

Everyone's Day At Work

This is the sight that greets us when we get home from work and check on our micro-flock. While we were busy at work, so were the girls! (The golf balls are in there to prevent the girls from pecking at and eating their own eggs. Yes, it looks weird, but it works)

So we work for this...
and they work for seeds!

"Hey, we should ask for a raise!"

Tomato-mania begins!

That time of year is here already. Tomatoes out the you-know-where. So begins the tomato-mania, ie: the mad scramble to harvest all the rapidly ripening tomatoes and dry them, pickle them, can them, and make tomato sauce and salsa while they are perfectly red and fresh.

In a weird way, tomato-mania is kind of like the Olympics.

There is the thrill of victory!

                Fresh tomato sauce with garlic and basil
                            Mmmmm......almost done

And there is the agony of defeat

         The dishes...never a fun chore, especially at 12:01 AM after making sauce all night
               Maybe this mess can wait until tomorrow
