First Egg!

One of my pullets is now officially a hen. I found a small but perfectly sound egg in the pen this morning when I went to move it. Hooray for chickens!

Flea Market Report

I took several cases of honey to the Tuesday Flea Market and sold 16 quarts. My set up was actually just outside the flea market with clear visibility to all cars and pedestrians coming and going. Selling out of the car trunk was a breeze! My display was invaded by ants briefly; squishing them by hand felt like a round of Whack-A-Mole.

One of the great things about selling face to face is making conversation with interesting people. I met a local blacksmith who offered to teach me about metal and tools! I've always wanted to know how to REALLY sharpen a knife, or any tool for that matter. Now to make the time to learn...

Still Selling Honey!

Zack and I went to the Farmer's Market yesterday and had pretty good sales. Again, quarts were slow. I will be going to the Tuesday Flea Market in Murphy this week with quarts ONLY.
