Sixteen eggs today. Sixteen!
Sunday, March 1, 2009
I haven't been able to drum up a lot of interest in egg-trade or egg sales, either. Looking at Craigslist, seems like a lot of people are trying to sell eggs. I think maybe, when the economy started to go south late last year, more local folks decided to get hens, and there is now a general surplus of eggs in the area. That's just a theory.
I did trade two dozen eggs for a homemade apple pie (NOT bread man's pie, alas. This pie was mediocre.), and I do have an egg drop to perform next week, two dozen more. But that's not making a dent in sixteen eggs a day, friends.
We're going to have to start eating a few chickens, I think.
