Egg Delivery to the Eastside!

Posted on February 5, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

Would you like eggs delivered to your home or office?  Just email or call me to set this up.

I come up to Issaquah for a hike in the morning and then make some rounds to deliver chicken eggs and duck eggs before I had back home to Enumclaw.  I will also have some vegetables available this year.  I deliver to the following areas:  Issaquah, Snoqualmie, Pine Lake, Sahalie and Redmond Town Center.  I also drive through Black Diamond and Maple Valley.

Delivery is on the first and third Monday of each month.

I have plenty of duck eggs right now.  The chicken eggs from my new hens will start up in March.  There is no extra charge for delivery.  The chicken eggs are $7 per dozen and duck eggs are $8 per dozen.

Ready for winter

Posted on November 20, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

The weather angels were were smiling on me Sunday.  We had a dry day and I was able to move both duck houses and the egg mobile to the dry pasture without getting stuck in the mud.  After today’s heavy rain, that would not have been possible.  In the early afternoon, I moved the egg mobile about 80 feet to the gate.  I just wanted to know if I could get through the standing water without getting stuck.  Luckily, that worked.  Next, all I had to do is come back at sunset to close in the chickens.  Right around 4:15pm, they all came walking zombie-like toward their house.  Otherwise, there is no herding or hurrying chickens like you can do with ducks.  Luckily it was still light out when the last chicken went up the ramp.  I closed it and moved them to the front pasture where it is dry.  Had to turn the headlights on the tractor when I returned it to the barn.

I got all the four-legged creatures in the pasture with the barn and big run-in shelter.  The sheep tend to use the run-in shelter and the cows like to loaf around in the barn. Bo (the Great Pyrenees/Maremma cross dog) has his little entrance to the hay storage area where he likes to sleep.  I also checked and double-checked all the gates to make sure everyone stays where they are supposed to be.

So my only other winter chore is to process my remaining older laying hens to make room for the new Black Australorps in the egg mobile.  They will start laying in January.  I’ve processed about half of my older laying hens and have been making wonderful soups, chicken pot pie and chicken enchilada casserole.

With all my new chickens and ducks, I’ll have lots of eggs and duck eggs next year.

Now for winter, I will be kicking back with all the seed catalogs and dreaming about a beautiful garden next year.  My newly planted garlic is already coming up!

Egg Recipes from PCC Natural Markets

These all look so good I had to share.

Kuku Sabzi looks like an interesting dish and definitely different.  My chives are growing now, but I’ll have to buy some dill and cilantro.  I’ll try to follow the given recipe the first time, but I can’t help wondering how it would be with a little fromage blanc that I made recently in a cheese class using wonderful raw jersey milk.

The Rustic Potato-Creme Fraiche Souffle calls for a head of roasted garlic so that has to be good.

For my next cheese making adventure, I could try making feta and use that in the Seasonal Frittata with leeks, mushrooms and potato.

The final recipe in this group is a Flan.  I’ve made baked custard, but not this exact recipe.
