It was wonderful! I used a completely different pastry recipe and I must say that not only was it easier, it was delicious!
We've also been working in the garden getting it ready for this year's crop. We have been finding a phenomemal amount of cutworms. Initially, I just chopped them in half with the shovel (I actually feel guilty killing them but I also don't want them eating my veggies.) Then, I had a fabulous idea! I got all the kids to collect them in this container (we counted 22!!!!) and then we fed them to the chickens. You would have thought we were feeding them 'poultry candy'.
They don't look nearly as appetizing to me....
We had watched a clip on Youtube (this one is my favourite) involving jumping chickens at one point. Liv has been trying to get the girls to exercise their short scaly legs ever since. No treat has been able to entice our little egg suppliers to hop yet....until the cutworms.It was hilarious watching Lucy do 'chicken tricks'! The kids had a blast and are gung ho to look for more cutworms in the garden.
