so we are not farmers
we don't even have a garden,
not even a tomato plant this year.
Non-agricultural all the way.
Never mind the 20+ years
that JWS spent as a dairy farmer.
Town life all the way now.
So, why do I have incubators of eggs on my dining room table, you ask?
Close proximity to the Dayton Fair.
The eggs needed a home
close to the fair.
They will hatch fair week
not in my house
but at the fairgrounds.
They just needed a shorter commute to the fair
a safe place
So for a few weeks,
we are chicken farmers...
And this morning....I am out of eggs
to make pork chops...
someone is going to the store.
My worst fear?
That one of those little buggers decides
to be premature!
How appropriate that the centerpiece on my table
happened to be chickens to watch over
those cute little things.
