Happy Thursday Folks!
One great thing about our city is the by-law that allows each household to have a maximum of 3 hens (and goats as well, actually). While my backyard still needs extensive work for me to even toy with the idea of accommodating a few hens, my friend Emily has been happily enjoying fresh eggs every morning for almost a year. Last weekend I brought Samuel to meet these famous chickens. How sweet were they?! Samuel was surprisingly comfortable around them, happily petting and feeding the little ones. I can envision him being a super “hen-guardian” for our future brood.
Emily’s visit was also the perfect excuse to exchange some fermented goods. I had done a batch of sauerkraut while Emily made kimchi. I had experimented with kimchi a few years ago and was pretty happy with the results. Now, it pales in comparison with the amazing spicy and sour flavours that emanate for Emily’s jar.
The house also saw some commotion. We are renovating the spare bedroom to be Samuel’s new room. He is so excited that he loves helping out every chance he gets. I also finally finished my vision board! Guess what? It includes chickens!
Have a wonderful week! Make it count!
