Happy Easter

I have a 23 LB ham ready to cook for today, for 5 people.  We love ham left overs!  Field work will start this week and nothing is better than a ham sandwich, in the tractor, with mustard, horshradish, mayo on a soft bun!  I am also making bean casserole, baked potatoes, lettuce salad, and a chocolate-carmel brownie for dessert.  Kids are coming over at 3 and eat about 6pm.  They live close.  Roger cooked pork sausages at church this morning.  The Men have a softball team fundraiser on Easter every year.  We donate the sausage, 50 lbs.

We got 600 baby chicks thursday and we have only lost 2 so far!  Thats good news.  One year, the heat went out in the building and we lost 120 the first night!  They cost over $1 to purchase day old chicks.

We will raise three "batches" this summer.  The last batch will be butchered in October.  They wil be 4-5 lbs in weight in 9 weeks.


Happy Easter!  Dawn @ PPF
