Nature has no rival when it comes to color and freshness.
This week I discovered a little thank you gift on my back stoop rail: one dozen farm-fresh eggs. A gift I don’t take lightly (just colored lightly), farm-fresh eggs stand cockscombs above their grocery store counterparts. The yolks are as sunny as any summer day, standing proud and dome-like in a pool of resting whites. A quick spin of a dinner fork transforms yolk and egg into a frothy broth of gold.Scrambled, fried, poached or boiled, the incredible edible egg is even more incredible and more edible when you know the chicken’s name or at least where it nests. Here’s to farm-fresh eggs! Treat yourself to a dozen and you’ll never go back to store-bought.
Organic fed and pastured, no wonder Ava’s chickens (and eggs) are happy. In case you’re wondering, she has about 80 chickens representing 14 breeds. Happy Easter, my friends.
As for my chickens (seen above), I lost them to some wily weasels or minks. I’m hesitant to restart the flock until I install gun turrets, land mines, and electric fences, and maybe even a crocodile-stocked moat for good measure.
Sorry about your chickens, Tom …. but I’m ready for some farm-fresh eggs. Thanks ! Brooks
I agree! I love how they sell eggs in Lebanon; in the village stores, they have them in wicker baskets with their (um) dirst still on them.
There is nothing better than farm fresh eggs… and the color of those shells!!
Skip the munitions, go straight for the moat and crocodiles….
I ‘d like to style a kitchen photo shoot just around those beautiful eggs.
Let me know if I need FedEx a couple dozen to NC.
I remember when our kids were small we used to stay at a farm with a guest house in Southern Illinois. In the morning the kids would go find fresh eggs in the coop, then eat “their” eggs for breakfast.
That sounds like great way to spend time with your kids!
Tom, I’m very lucky why I can easily reach and buy the eggs of free chickens.
Sare, that sounds like the perfect way to get fresh eggs!
Speaking of moats and crocs, how are you planning on keeping the critters out of your hoop house? You will be creating a nice climate for the beasties in the winter.
Oh I don’t know Karen, I’m currently just trying to build a structure that will stand on its own. 😉
Thise eggs look great! I only buy eggs from a farm nearby: locally!
My friends also have hens with eggs & they ( the eggs) taste fantastic too!
So true! Being raised on farm eggs, it was a shock when I had my first “store-bought” eggs…where was the flavor?
