Last night I peeled the hard boiled eggs and made up a pickling solution. I watched a bunch of pickling methods on YouTube and noticed that recipes varied a lot and weren’t too particular so I used half apple cider vinegar that Dominique gave me that she made last year and half water about a tablespoon of salt and some bay leaves and pepper corns and some chili flakes and garlic to the gallon container and I sliced up an onion and added that too. Oh and a couple of tablespoons of pickling spices.
I’m not sure why the jar needs to be put in the refrigerator but most people put their jar in there so I did too. Seems with all the vinegar it would do just fine at room temperature.
I’ll be sampling the eggs as they age just to see how they change.
This morning once I got it going I feed the chickens and let them out to graze.
After figuring out what I’d do today I decided to work on clearing out this trail as I want to move the trail on the right to this spot. There’s a bunch of sticks there I need to rake up and move somewhere.
Sticks for protection
Moved a little dirt too
Next I wanted to move some of the dirt on the new trail to a low spot in the back yard that needed some dirt to level it up.
Needed a nap
I still had a lot of day light left after finishing up that but my body said it had enough and didn’t want to do much of anything except nap so I did for awhile and then came out and sat around chair hopping enjoying the nice day.
That was my day.
