A few days ago I saw an ad in my local poultry group online. It was offering part of a ton of organic layer pellets for sale. I don’t know about your part of the world but organic layer pellet prices have been soaring and so have other organic grains. I called and had Dimitri put 3 bags aside for me and I picked them up this morning.
Dimitri owns Woodstar Cafe’ in Northampton. It is a family owned bakery, sandwich shop and espresso bar. He has 31 hens and uses all the eggs at his restaurant and he also grows all his own greens, some fruit and veggies at his farm nearby. He uses no trans fats and all of his baked goods are baked from scratch. It is wonderful to have a local restaurant who cares so much where his food comes from that he grows it himself.
The food is called Morrison’s Organic Layer Pellets which is my Mother’s maiden name. I am sure my hens will love it and I like pocketing the savings.
I purchased 2 more package of tomato seeds and I think I will purchase two more and that will be more than enough. I have done more calculating on just what type of tomato and what I am planning to do with them this year.
I have picked out another Heirloom tomato. Its called Principe Borghese by Botanical Interest seeds. It has heavy yields and is traditional for oven roasted or sun-dried. I would really like to do some sun-dried tomatoes this year.
I never seem to have luck starting peppers so I will be buying them this year. I love to get green, yellow and purple, which look great in summer pasta salads and freshen up a dish during the winte
Minnie had another good day. I decided to give her another day to feel really secure in the bedroom. She knows there are other cats out there and the other cats know she is here. Tomorrow I will let her out watching Angus every moment.
Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day. Carole
