The Micro.blog photo challenge word for day 13 is “filter” (suggested by Spratte). While we have various filters around the homestead, the first ones that came to mind are AeroPress coffee filters. 📷 #mbaug
Quack quack! The newest ducklings have been hatched and shipped, so the quackage should arrive at my local post office for pickup either tomorrow or (more likely) Wednesday. 🚚🦆🎉
I saw a headline today that Best Buy currently has Apple’s HomePod for $199. Since we’ve been eating at our dining table more recently (instead of in front of the TV), listening to music on the Amazon Echo, we thought we’d get a HomePod for better sound.
On the homestead blog: oh noes, we decided to get more ducklings! 🦆
I’m fortunate that I don’t need to leave the homestead very often: it’s been 57 days since the last time, when I picked up the ducklings (and I went 61 days earlier this year). But today I did, to get duck and chicken food, straw, and mower gas.
Just got back from a trip to Costco. Certainly different than the last time we went there a couple of months ago. No rationing, and plenty of stocks of everything, but lots of social distancing signs and floor markers, cashier screens, etc.
Today’s color is yellow. An unused shot of yellow straw, yellow bee nucs, yellow bees, and a yellow tie-down strap in the back of our truck when we recently picked up a couple of nucs and other supplies. 📷🌈 #mbmay
Question: how much would you expect to pay for fresh eggs from a roadside farm stand? Our chickens are laying about a dozen a day at present, faster than we can give them away. We’re planning to put them by the road to sell. 🐓🥚
