Your feathered friends here are working their tails off to make up the difference. We have eggs, eggs, and still more eggs! Eggs are a seasonal item, just as seasonal as tomatoes. The best tomatoes are harvested in June and July. The best-quality eggs are laid in March and April. You can scramble and freeze eggs to use later in any dish where you'd use a beaten egg - including plain old scrambled eggs. Also check out fellow chicken farmer Jessie's seven favorite egg recipes over here. (Personally, I'll pass on the Aussie Burger, though I love Shakshuka made with home-canned tomatoes!)
In other news, I'm sad to share that both my grandmother (and last living grandparent) and an uncle passed away this weekend. March can be a bitter month. I have my grandmother in particular to thank for my current occupation. She was the toughest little lady I've ever known. She lost both parents in a house fire when she was just eight years old, grew up on an Ohio dairy farm through the Great Depression, brought herself up growing truck vegetables to sell on the side, raised three children, buried her own husband far too early 25 years ago, and fought on by herself until she was 92 years old. She never gave up, she never sat down, she never caved in. Those precious summers I spent on her childhood farm and home are most of the reason I'm here today, doing what I do.
I will be in Ohio most of this week, but my husband Andrew will still be here to mind the farm to cut and pack your orders, and I'll have email access all week regardless of where I am. We'll get your orders - no change to our usual schedule. (It's nice to finally have some help!)
Eat more eggs, and I'll see you all soon!
