Chickens, mayhaps?

I eat eggs essentially daily. For years, I have wanted chickens. Everyone around here has chickens. The farm supply store has baby chicks for sale. I can’t stop thinking about chickens! I spent a good chunk of today reading about chickens and trying to design the best/cheapest chicken coop possible (I have a lot of…

Seed starting has commenced…

I was testing some seeds to see if they were still good, but my new seeds came in the mail yesterday, and this morning I decided to just roll the dice and try planting them. So exciting! Over the last few days, I’ve turned an unused closet into a “greenhouse” of sorts. And by “greenhouse”, I…

The Many Lives of Roast Chicken

Now that you’ve heard all about my favorite way to roast a chicken, I thought I’d take a moment to discuss how I use it throughout the week. I am sure some families can eat a chicken at one meal, or at least over the course of a day or two, but I live alone. A…
