tomorrow is cant miss. the first dozen or so get some pretty sweet looking broccolli. more on the way. as pictured above purslane has gone commercial in lincoln. i predict the next weed craze will be wood sorrel. mabel has moved in with the pigs. she is starting to act like a pig - grunting instead of whining. its good. we made kimchee - the one you get tomorrow is unfermented - eat fresh like subway. its my friend gregs recipe and this isnt as good as his. korean variety fermenting. if you cook these peas they lose some crunch. crunch is at a premium these days.

eggs slightly off because we have one - probably two, eggeaters. unless you are checking often its hard to catch the eggeaters. ill get em because after a week of eating just eggs chickens start to look like shit. and crazy. we pulled all the lettuce that we planted that is now in the shade under trees. looks kind of weird but tastes good. the baby llama looks like ray charles. Hannah said she didnt have time to make salads last week so she just cooked the whole bag down at ate it. lettuce.....everything. is hannah nuts? see you tomorrow if i get out of the weeds.
