Rose Cooks For the Weekend

Stephen Pennoyer and Mark White moved the chicken coop to Rose Thomas’s La Dolce Vita Farm Saturday morning.

It took two trips (bless their souls), but the coop is so happy to be on flat ground once again.  (It’s made by Roots and Coops.)

And see the coop wheels all pumped up?  Stephen got some product you spray inside flat wheels that pumps them up AND coats the inside so that the tire STAYS pumped up.

I came over after I went to the dump–and after Stephen and Mark’s second run–to show Rose the ins and outs of the coop.

Rose bakes and cooks for Saturday morning, and her customer line was slowing down when I came:

Here’s her Facebook post for today–Il Forno (The Oven) at Dolce Vita Farm:

Good Morning Everyone! Today I am opening with fresh hot Bacon and Egg cups, Morning Glory muffins, Hot coffee from Green Tree and loads of fresh breads to include: Pain di mais (sourdough cornbread), Semolina, Whole wheat sourdough, Lt Wheat pecan/raisin, and regular cornbread with corn and bacon. There is also ricotta/cheese cakes with almond biscotti crusts and my fab Oatmeal everything cookie. Todays entree is Seafood Chowdha with shrimp, scallops and haddock.

Have a great day everyone!

Here’s Rose with puppy Ivy–whose face looks like a Teddy Bear’s:

I got a cup of coffee and we walked about.

My chickens are still staying close to each other, and they still recognize my voice.  They also recognized their old coop:

Pumpkin is VERY happy at Rose’s:

I’ll be getting these at Rose’s now:

She’s going to use the coop first to pen Pumpkin with her three remaining Blue Wheaten hens and “Baby” her best broody hen to see if she can get more of this wonderful breed.

I went home with a bacon/egg cup, a quart of DELICIOUS chowder, and two of the corn cakes.

And I’ll be back next Saturday morning for sure.
