Food Production

For several weeks Eason has been interested in making granola and selling it. This week was the big week. We made granola on Tuesday, he washed the bottles and packaged the granola, and he prepared his signage. Yesterday at 3:00 the sale began! It was a wild success. By the end of the sale all 6 jars were sold (half to Daddy).
It's been some time since I've blogged, but in the interim we got more baby chickens (15 to be exact). We've culled the flock by selling some young hens in the Bay Area and unfortunately, or fortunately, which ever way you see it, one of the hens was a rooster. We tried to find a home because we hated to eat such a beauty, but to no avail. Before we got complaints we had him for dinner. I was sort of dreading the process, but Brian and I were quit surprised at how easy it was to butcher and process the bird. Maybe it was beginners luck, but I think we'd consider getting some meat birds in the future. Especially considering how expensive organic chicken can be.
