Getting back to the garden... and back into the kitchen.

The Latest Adventures of Chicken Mama!
I have 13 hens in my chicken coop, and on Sunday I got a Grand Slam-- 13 eggs! Organic eggs from happy chickens. Doesn't get much better than that!
Then on Monday I think an alien chicken invaded my coop. In addition to 8 regular sized eggs, I got a mini egg, a little larger than a robin's egg. I don't know how I'll cook it yet, sunny side up? If I scramble it, it would fill a thimble-- maybe. (Grin.)
For 32 years my husband and I ran a small retail garden center in Ohio. We keep a flock of chickens for eggs, and we make our own wine from kits and from fruit that grows on our 8 acres. In the spring, summer and fall you'll find me outside in my gardens, and in the winter I'll be inside, cooking, baking, working on my scrapbooks or reading.
