Letters from a Hill Farm
A dozen a day? What do you do with all of them? That's a lot in one week!
Tom sells quite a few at his school. We figure the eggs sold pay for the grain, plus we get fresh eggs for ourselves so it's a great deal!
How lovely to have your own fresh eggs. You are so very lucky.
I think so, too! It seems like a miracle to me. Such a gift.
Wow! Lucky you. Fresh eggs!!!
What a healthy and fun way to live. I've tasted fresh eggs and they've left me thinking: "then what on EARTH are those things in the supermarkets?" There's nothing, nothing like a fresh egg. Someday I hope we can have that life too. We're working on it.Your posts are to be treasured :)
Beautiful brown eggs. Do you raise Rhode Island Reds?
Joyce, if you click on 'chicks' in the post, you can read all about our chickens. They are Dominiques, probably the mothers and fathers of the RI Reds. Smilnsign and The Elementary, thanks. We just love them. If anyone comes back to read the comments, let me know how you most like your eggs!
Those Dominickers are beautiful chickens. THey lay wonderful eggs too. Yummm...I have always wanted chickens. I guess I will never have the pleasure but I enjoy reading about them and seeing pictures of them.
Yet another reason I wish we lived near one another! I love farm fresh eggs! I'd buy a dozen from you every week.
I like mine fried, over easy, served on a piece of wheat toast. Next best way is scrambled, sometimes with sauted mushrooms and tomatoes.
I like my eggs poached or lightly boiled - then I can dip soldiers (thin cubes of bread) in the runny yolks.
how exciting to have your own fresh eggs. It's so fun when we can grow our own food.
I fry a little onion, some cilantro if I have it, then add an egg beaten with a dash of milk and a pinch of salt. I do like eggs, and I'll eat them any way, but I like my scrambled recipe best.
And beautiful eggs they are! You're fortunate to have your own suppliers.
Thanks for all your ways of cooking eggs! I was so surprised and delighted to have so many comments.
Great photo, Nan! It must be lovely to gather eggs from your own chickens. I love the brown ones with their speckled shells.xo,Lynda
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
