A couple new additions around the M Manor. We have chickens! Four actually. The other two are hiding inside. Sugar barks constantly at them so I need to do some research on getting her to back the heck off. Eventually, the ladies will have a bit more room to scratch around. For now, they’re still getting used to their new home and the dogs. They have cracked corn and scratch on the ground every morning plus pellet feed. I might add some oyster shell because I found one egg that hadn’t hardened. Could just be from the move… Shock and all. Plus Sugar’s barking and stalking probably isn’t helping either.
Two eggs the first day! Fresh eggs are so much tastier.
I went raspberry picking with my father in law the other morning. U- pick patches are the way to buy berries, folks. $2 a pound! I picked almost three pounds and made a couple jars of jam. So delicious! If we go for blueberries next, I’ll freeze those for my protein shakes.
Crabbing! The Mister took me and his father out last week to drop our pots in the bay. We used salmon carcasses this time and we caught about seven crab. Unfortunately, four were female (can’t take home the females) and one male was too small. But two was all we needed for our feast!
Happy Monday! I’m off to clean up the house before our next round of visitors arrive on Saturday.
