the power is back! internet and cable are still out, but we once again have food in the fridge:)
this was the post i was working on last friday when the storm hit...
as we've learned more about the general unpleasantness surrounding conventional chickens and eggs, we've tossed around the idea of raising a few chickens. jim got some books out of the library, did some online research, and drew up some plans for a coop. he submitted a proposal to the camp board for permission (since we don't own our home), and they green-lighted it, so we may be raising laying chickens before long. well, once we get the yard cleaned up of all the felled trees!
the next day we visited on the pond farm, and dylan got to play with their baby goats and even gather fresh eggs. later that afternoon, she and jim visited another family with chickens, (where she got to hold one!), and we rounded out our day at a local dairy with a gallon of delicious fresh milk.
