So, I have a week off of work.  Yesterday I decided to tackle the over-abundance of Weinlander pole beans in our garden.  I picked them and then canned 20 quarts of them (one broke).  I do not think I have ever canned that many beans before at one time.  I was up until 12:30 in the morning doing it.

I had to come up with a quick dinner that did not take up too much stove or kitchen space while I was in the throws of bean canning.  So I chose a new recipe for me- White Beans with Kale, Chard and Eggs.  I had all the ingredients in my cupboard or in my farm (swiss chard and eggs).  It was easy-peasy and yummy.


Today I decided to move one of the hay loft hens and her chicks to a barn pen to give them more space.  I was attacked by the hen in this process, and she escaped.  She almost got my eyeball in her violent but misguided defense of her chicks.


I moved the chicks but could not catch her, and she did not seem to want to return to them.  So I set up a chick warmer for them, and they seem OK.

Then I racked 10 gallons of plum wine while I watched the Seahawks lose to the Broncos.  Nice vacation so far, huh?

    Ouch!! I’m thankful that she didn’t hurt you any worse, but I’ll bet the pain of that owie is no fun. I hope the chickies will be okay without their mom.

    Have a better day!!
