On another note. . . .

I got in the mood to create a chicken card today after hanging out for a bit this morning with my girls (hens) and buddy (rooster).  DSC_0007_edited-33

Even when you give the girls a great set up with nesting boxes you will still find eggs here and there.  Just look at those 3 cute eggs in the coop corner.  I guess that was a comfy spot on a chilly morning.  Never fails, one girl will lay in a weird spot and there soon will be more hens standing in line ready to lay in the same place.

A couple of the girls did as they were taught and left me eggs in the nesting boxes.

This old girl always comes in the coop to inspect what I am doing in there.  She will just hang out on the door edge until I’m finished gathering eggs.  Kind looks at me like I look at a repairman that is in my house, with a bit of a watchful eye.

This is Jo Jo.  It’s hard to see but she has a crippled up right foot.  She was born with it that way.  She actually walks on the top of her right foot instead of on the bottom the way it is turned up.  When she hatched it was apparent her foot was not right.  I tried to straighten it out with a little homemade boot but to no avail.  Some may have just did away with her but, we let her enjoy her life as if she were normal and she has reward us by being one of our best layers.  Jo Jo is super sweet too.  I believe we made the right decision.

We only have one Rooster, Stewie Jr.  He is a mixed breed.  The only one to hatch out of a clutch of seven eggs.  Here he is in all of his glory, surrounded by his girls, there are 14 of them.  He is one lucky rooster.  One thing you have to respect about a rooster, they will sacrifice themselves to a predator in order to protect their hens.  I’m hoping Stewie Jr. never has to do that.  He makes quite the commotion when there is a hawk in the area so the girls will take cover and then he stands out in the open a bit just daring the hawk to swoop down.  With that said it makes perfect sense that roosters out weight the hens by quite a bit.  Stewie stands about 6 inches taller than the girls.  He is a big boy.  I can’t see any hawk being able to lift him off the ground.

And that is what is happening in our neck of the woods. . . . . .

On another note. . . .

I do a whole lot of canning and storing food away during the Summer when my garden is exploding with produce, but I also do some canning during every season. Here is one that is perfect for Winter.

This week I canned beans, beans, beans. . . .Pinto, Navy and Black Beans.  I didn’t grow them, I just picked up bags of dried beans when I caught them on sale.  If you are anything like me, when you see a recipe that calls for beans you pass on it if you have to wait to soak your beans so they are usable, or pay a very high price to purchase your beans already canned.   You can can beans yourself for about 25 cents a can and it is so easy.  This is what I do.

DSC_0001

Sterilize your jars, bands and lids.  Rinse your dried beans and pick out anything that shouldn’t be in them.  In a pint jar add 1/2 a cup of beans, 1/2 tsp canning or kosher Salt to your jar and fill the jar up with water, leaving 1″ head room (space at top).  That 1/2 cup of beans will fill the jar, they expand a lot!

Process your beans in a pressure canner for 90 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure, here in Ohio.  You must use a pressure canner.  You cannot use a water bath canner for this.

DSC_0002_edited-31

I have an enormous pressure canner, because I can a lot!  My pressure canner holds 18 pint jars.  There are much smaller pressure canners out there.  They are a great investment and it will last you a life time.

DSC_0005_edited-16

After 90 minutes, let the pressure in your canner drop to zero and then take your wonderful, ready to use canned beans out of the canner.  I canned 36 jars in a matter of an afternoon saving me loads of money, at least $36 dollars.  :)  The next day my beans were put on my top pantry shelf.  I have all the beans I need for a really long time to add to any recipe I find.

Huge Hugs,
