A Homesteaders Dozen

Thursday, May 19, 2011

12 weeks before State Fair
11 vegetable beds ready to plant
10 yellow raspberries potted and ready to sell
9 pints of blackberry jam made
8 new chicks in the brooder
7 friends spending time at the beach
6 pounds of pork shoulder turned into sausage
5 dozen farm fresh eggs sold today
4 market lambs gaining steadily
3 roosters processed and made into soup base
2 farm dogs lazing around
1 gosling growing fat
0 complaints on this beautiful spring day

Did You Know… A baker’s dozen is (maybe) 13, but a shepherds dozen is 11.
