We are getting our first greens from the Family Food Forest and it tastes like Spring! We're also receiving about 14 eggs a day from the ladies. Our original plan was to get a farmer's market booth to sell some of our excess, but honestly, till after Birdsong, I'm swamped.
So, my son is looking for locals who want weekly eggs, and produce as it comes along. In the meantime, we are all enjoying the goodness ourselves! We had a big family dinner the other night, and the salad was the highlight of the meal for me.
While dinner was cooking, the fairy grand girls and I tried an experiment. I'd heard that tonic water glowed under a black light.
When I heard that tonic glows, I was glad I was a hoarder and I had a bottle tucked away. I filled a bucket with tonic water, and set it in the tub. Our bathroom hasn't got any windows, so with the door shut, it was perfect for the experiment. We got our black light (it's actually called the "Pee Finder" and is a flashlight to hunt down dog pee with, so is battery operated, not plugged in), and hung it from the faucet above the bucket of tonic.
Dewdrop didn't really care, but Sugarwings loved seeing which toys would glow and throwing them in the tonic. Next time, I think I'll have a few glo sticks handy to toss in.
