    • Didn't accomplish much on the farm yesterday. Did deliver some eggs, and I think I may have a new customer.... the resturant I was selling to hasn't ordered anythin in about a month, and didn't respond back to last weeks call to see if the needed eggs, soo I am looking elsewhere to send egg volume. Thos dang hens don't stop laying cuz someone stops buying. The new cllient is a small bakery in town. The owner seems to be interested in using them as part of a breakfast line she wants to start (egg biscuits etc) as opposed to using them in her baked goods..... We shall see. I will deliver a couple of dozen eggs for her to sample, and go from there.

      The wife directed me to a website tonight bfore I left for work... apparently she has a bug in her bonnet to get a new dog. We lost our chocolate lab about 18 months ago, and I haven't been very interested in another dog. We had the lab for 8 or 9 years, and she was my dog. An 80 lb lap dog....She would crawl up on the couch and lay her head in my lap... She was a sweety. Now the wife wants a new dog..... a bull mastif. The local animal shelter has a 1 year old female mastif for adoption, and the wife wants me to go take a look.....

      Finished the Whole30 book the other day..... apparently I started 2 days ago. Today is day 3. Had sauteed onions, red bell pepper and mushrooms on my scrabled eggs tonight. Have grilled chicken breast, salad and green beans for lunch. I think I an going to roast some pumpkin and butternut squash today.

      The squash that I planted a couple of weeks ago is getting big. The kubocha leaves are huge, the size of dinner plates or so. Planted acorn squash and new england pie pumpkins, swiss chard and beets this weekend. Plan on planting broccoli (for the wife...), cabbage and collards this week. Will start leeks, spinach, radishes, carrots, turnips, ruttabaga, lettuce and salad greens this weekend.

          NO, you should only beat the bad ones....

          "Not bloody likely" sums it up quite nicely..... you, sir, are a master of brevity and wit!

          • Did a little research on the dog wife wants.... holy moley! A female is 100-120 lbs.... I'm seeing 50 lb bags of dog food being brought in by the truck load! holy crap!

            • Good morning!

              It's tough to replace a loved pet. I still haven't gotten a cat to replace my old boy. I think about it, look at the pics posted on the shelters' websites, then just move on. Cats, fortunately, don't eat 50 pounds of food very quickly.

              Broccoli isn't a fave, though I can eat Brussel sprouts by the tank load. Still, a hot grill or oven and some olive oil and salt, and almost any veggie I don't love becomes something quite palatable. Barring that, boiling it to mush and running it through the food processor with cream and butter works also. (That would even work on a discarded pair of sandals.)

              Hope the bakery becomes a new customer.

                Yup.... the last one was my dog, this one will be the wife's...

                I'd rather eat the sandal than the broccoli....

                      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                      • Not that my opinion matters but Labs are my favorite, especially chocolate or black. Yellow is the crazy color as we say around here. I love my crazy Prozac popping little boy but every yellow one I have had has been neurotic. Had a Rottie/lab mix that was amazing too!

                          Don't you have rabbits or possums to shoot/trap? Free dog food
                          Or a chicken every couple of days, maybe.

                          My girl is around 80lbs and my boy is 85 to 90 lbs (had to put him in a diet after he hit 110lbs a few years ago). And the East less than a 1.5 lbs of raw meaty bones and offal per day on average.

                          They are akita's though and are known for their small to moderate appetites. I think a mastiff is a different kettle of fish. I'd still recommend feeding them raw (puppy primal if you will) though.

                              oh, I like the direwolf idea! Actually we talked a good while back of getting an Irish wolfhound.....

                              There were about a dozen pits at the animal control office.... several were pups, most were fairly grown dogs..... wife's not a fan of pits, I'm neutral on them. I have a friend that has a couple of them, and he tells some hillarious stories about his dogs. Pits have gotten a bad rap because of asshat owners, I think...

                                I did a dog-sitting for a friend of mine one time. They had a dauchshund and an akita, both knew me pretty well, and one day I went to feed them and after I let them out to go potty and back in to feed them, the akita got way to aggressive for my cofort level. The next day she wouldn't even let me in the house..... so my experince with akitas hasn't been the most possitive to be had.. Gorgeous dog though!
