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
