June 2009 Farm Production

We have egg-eaters once again. It is so frustrating. Don thinks we should just start knocking the hens off one-by-one until it stops. You know, "the beatings will continue until morale improves!" Anyway, something must be done because it sure doesn't pay to feed them if they won't return the favor.

Eggs gathered: 123 (10.25 dozen), or about 4/day
Eggs sold: none

In addition to the produce we ate fresh straight from the garden, I also put up the following:
  • 21 half-pint jars of strawberry jam
  • 10 lbs frozen strawberries
  • 4 lbs spinach
  • 4.5 pints pickled beets
  • 10 pints peas
  • 1 cup dehydrated zucchini
The zucchini, especially, is starting to come in fast and furiously. Don thinks I should sit outside and watch it to see if I can actually see it growing. The tomatoes are on the vine (still green), the corn has tassels and silk, the cucumbers & pumpkins are just beginning to fruit, and the peppers are starting to grow. It is all quite exciting. Which is good...because at this point, it looks like I'll be having a July baby and I need something to do to keep from going crazy waiting!
