Yesterday was a great mail day! I had entered a small online contest for some Baker creek seeds and I got an email saying that i had won some so yesterday i got them in the mail! From top left they are: Squash turks caps or Turban; Cucumber white wonder; Tomato green doctors. From lower left; Mission bells california poppy; German chamomile.
Last nite we went to a Salsa making workshop that the local extention office was offering also and we learned how to make some Tomato based, Veggie based and fruit based salsas. We came home with lots of recipies and a packet on preserving salsas. We got to talk to alot of people and also got an avacodo pit to try to grow! We thought we just as well give it a try! Next month they are offering a canning, freezing and dying class so we will also be taking that!
The broilers are now 3 weeks old and so far I have used 1 50lb bag of chick starter. So that is 16.6 pounds of food for 10 a week. That figures out 1.66 pounds of feed for each bird per day. So far the cost is at $35. That is $20 for the broilers and $15 for the chick starter.
