Well, what a glorious year it has been, and the weather this fall continues to be lovely! The past month has been insane with putting up garden goodness, family visiting, chicken harvesting, beef deliveries, furnace and waterline repairs, internet issues and then all the regular tending of things around the farm. I want to give everyone a heads up that the ducks are starting to get ready for winter vacation, there are less eggs each day so I know it won’t be long before they quit laying for the year. Duck eggs are a seasonal product after all, and because I do not cull my flock of older ducks, their laying is a bit less regular than younger birds. I just put them onto the garden after I collected my fill, and they are in heaven with all the kale, broccoli, chard, zucchinis, comfrey and radish tops to enjoy.
My first highland beef roast!!! SO YUMMMMMY! I cooked it for 12 hours in the crock pot with onions and garlic, beef broth and herb salt. So tender, so flavorful, so versatile for many meals afterwards too. Love the highlands, love their beef!
