And what better way to start your morning than a good breakfast. Eggs perhaps? Aren't they lovely? When the girls started laying five years ago, it was difficult for me to eat them. I am not sure if it was because they were to pretty to break or that I felt like each day when we collected them, we were stealing their babies. Regardless, now, we love our eggs! There is nothing like providing your family with food that was produced on your own property~
I found this fabulous Potager this morning which I am so envious of. Anne Marie has lovely gardens, and what seems like the perfect property to produce all sorts of produce as well as eggs for her family.
On my beside table sits the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. As soon as I finish Three Cups of Tea I will start reading it. I am really looking forward to picking up any ideas for eating locally, growing as much as we possibly can, planning ahead for seasons where we can't grow much, and maybe even giving up a bit in order to support our local growers. It should be an interesting book and I will let you know what I think once I am finished. I will tell you I am really enjoying Three Cups of Tea as it is inspirational (do you detect a theme in my reading material...?) and really makes one see how you don't have to have so much "stuff" and still can be very happy. It also has given me an appreciation for things that our family takes for granted.
