We also sold our first couple of dozen eggs. It wasn't much money but it will help to defray the growing feed bill.
We also purchased a dehydrator and tonight I am going to start dehydrating potatos. Simple and cheap, dehydrating them stops the growth of eyes and makes the fresh potato's last a very long time.
We are also looking at the beginning of Hurricane season and Rural Living is not immune to those. In fact we are only about 20 miles from a major bay system, Matagorda Bay and about 50 miles from the Gulf of Mexico. Matagorda bay is so large that if the eye of a Hurricane were do follow up the middle of Matagorda bay we'd be in trouble. Dehydrating food is a perfect way to store food for hurricane season.
That's all for now. Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
