2nd blog post

Ok so it’s been quite sometime since my last post. I mentioned that I have 4 children right? Plus, I do book keeping for my dad’s business, and babysit. Not to mention all of my hobbies, chores, etc. Excuses you say, you bet. Honestly blogging is a little bit out of my comfort zone. Putting my thoughts out there for anyone and everyone to see is a little scary to me. That’s how I know I should do it. Anything that stretches a person out of there comfort zone is usually good for them. 

What’s been on my mind lately you ask. Lots of stuff. Today I researched how to make kombucha tea, rare heritage chickens, and signed a petition for the Virginia food freedom act. Here it is if any of you are interested. http://campaigns.peers.org/petitions/pass-the-virginia-food-freedom-act?sp_ref=27563187.84.2097.f.0.4&source=fb_sp

Kombucha tea is an amazingly good for you probiotic drink that is sold in most supermarkets, but it isn’t cheap, so I plan on making my own with some scobies I received from my friend’s mother. She calls them mushrooms. They look like blobs of thick mucous. I plan on making it tomorrow. I might flavor them with blackberries (organic of course.) 

My chicken research was done because I want chickens darnit anyways! I’ve wanted them forever! I grew up with them and I feel lost without them. Chickens are the ideal pet, you feed them and they feed you. Show me a dog or cat that can do that! I am considering getting Chantecler chickens. They are a rare heritage breed that is listed as critical on the conservation priority list meaning they will soon be no more if people like me don’t act. They are said to be good winter layers which is crucial here is Minnesota aka the tundra. I still need to do a little more research, but am pretty certain that I will be ordering this type of chicken. The goal is to have chickens by the end of summer. Chickens of course are my gateway animal to full fledged farming! Hopefully! Well I am tired and going to bed. If there are spelling errors in this post so be it.
