How One Chicago Restaurant Went Totally Trash-Free
outdoor cooking. captain pie on lazy duty. aye.
Welcome to our 3 new chicks we got yesterday from High View Farm in Driftwood. We took a nice (and hot, no air conditioner in the VW bus) drive out to Dripping Springs then down HWY 12 to the farm. What a beautiful place. It’s for sale too. 73 acres. They are moving to Blanco for more land. They have horses, dairy goats, rabbits and lots of chickens - oh and some awesome turkeys.
She specializes in rare chicken breeds. Her favorite is the Partridge Brahmas. THEY ARE HUGE. and stately and beautiful. I had never seen a chicken like that. Pretty amazing.
Here’s the Breeds and names of our new girls. :-)
Splash Isbar (pronounced ICE-BAR)
this is the little white one. info about her breed and pictures.
This breed was introduced by a Catholic monk from Sweden. She will lay green eggs.
——- Her name is Isabelle. Isabelle the Isbar.
these are the other two darker colored chicks. info about their breed.
They are from Britain. They will lay blue eggs.
——- One is lighter, her name is: Mabel

backyard is drenched with rain, cool temps, mosquitos, glass of tequila over ice & a line full of wet clothes. no complaints.
This little lady sat patiently in a tree in the front yard. In the tree was a an empty feeder. My apologies.
My photos are not nearly as amazing as this work that has been all over the net this past week:
Finally making our own probiotic beverages. On the left is my 2nd batch of kombucha and on the right my 2nd batch of kefir soda. Seemed hard, really wasn’t.
