  3. please enter me, could use the wipes or the chicken salad seeds, have tried the seeds , I use them in the winter time when my chickens can't get greens because of the snow, I grow containers of it in the house and when ready I just take the whole thing out to them and when they are done with it I start some more. Works great so far, 2nd year doing it. Thanks

    Thanks for all of the ideas. Ordering my window sticker and herbs today, can't wait to proudly display fresh eggs from pampered pets on my car. Folks that know me already know I have become a chicken addict and proud of it. Thanks to all my reading of such knowledge as you have here I have spread the word to others that responded...Gee I never knew that or wow I can't wait to tell my sister etc. Thanks for all your hard work :)

    Kathy,
    I'm super impressed with how you consistently host this ever-increasing blog hop. For someone like me, who likes to link to one or two things each day, that consistency is really appreciated.
    Thanks!
    I've linked up 3 recipes using fruits and vegetables that are in season for me: for breakfast, some Low and Slow Pear Butter Waffles. Make the pear butter using Farmgirl Fare's super easy recipe (or any other way you like) then use some of it in my waffles.


    For a savory use of fruit, I'm sharing a wheat fennel focaccia dough topped with grapes, red onion, and goat cheese.


    And for a change of pace, straight vegetables--I'm on a quest to change the status of vegetable appetizers, so I'm sharing another one with you today--a Layered Summer Vegetable Appetizer. This concept recipe works with freshly picked and chopped vegetables, grilled vegetables, and preserved vegetables. it's gluten free and vegan, so it works with a wide variety of dietary needs.


    Thanks for hosting!

  28. No chickens yet, though 2nd Family who lives at the other end of our farm property has chickens (and supplies us with fresh eggs all the time). Your site keeps me inspired to have our own chickens at some point. We could use any of the giveaways to either share with them or save for when we get ours. Thanks for the giveaway.

  37. Thanks for yet another great giveaway. I love the idea of the seeds for the girlies :) Unfortunately my favorite girl, Scarlet, died recently and I only have 2 left. They wait until they see me come around the corner and start squawking for their daily veggies. The girls have their own area of the garden just for them plus all the weeds I can pick, leftovers after dinner, and cleanings from preparing dinner.
