Friend Shana, who can read the writing on the wall, is doing a bigger garden than usual, this year and she says she’ll be canning more fruits and vegetables, too.

And, (eventually) she’ll be taking care of the eggs. And the fried chicken, if they don’t produce, I’ll bet!

Her chicks arrived today:

Writes Shana:

Please thank your readers from me for buying bumperstickers & T shirts & rosary bracelets, which funded our project! We got 14 laying hens, and the hatchery sent (free) 9 cockerals for warmth in travel. We have named the males: “Pot Pie” “Fryer” “KFC” “Broiler” “Fricassee” “Noodle Soup” “Chicken Salad” “A la King” and “Coque au Vin”

I understand a silv’ry, short-legged chick is named after me!

Remaking America. Michelle Obama did promise, after all, that we’d never go back to being the way we were.
