A few things we’d like to share:
For those just joining our weekly menu plans, please note that we raise our own chickens for fresh eggs and are currently collecting 12-20 eggs per day. You’ll see these frequently incorporated into our weekly menu plans.
In addition to fresh herbs, we are still harvesting fresh jalapenos, eggplant, figs, watermelon, sweet potatoes and bell peppers from our small garden. You’ll notice that we didn’t list meat in this weeks grocery expense, that’s because meat isn’t currently on sale and the freezer is well stocked. Search for “Meat Restocking Week” for additional details.
