Still Holiday-ing

Hi Farm Friends,

Last week of the free-for-all holiday season! I'll save the resolution guilt trip for next week's newsletter, because when I see you this Saturday morning, you'll probably be a bit hungover and craving whatever greasy diner food gets you through that last hurrah. If it's eggs, I'll hook you up. We've got lots this week.

No chicken until next week, but the pork and the beef are still very much available.

And, as promised, here's the camping trip report. I went with my son's scout troop on a canoe camping trip in the Everglades, the ten thousand islands area off Everglades City. Do you know anyone who's done this before? No? There's a reason. It's because it's brutal. Bugs, so many bugs. Mosquitoes and no-see-ums. Ten thousand islands, and about 100 square feet not covered with mangroves. Winds and tides the opposite direction 90% of the time.

But it was fun enough. We all learned some survival skills. We saw some cool nature. When the crazy storm blew in that trapped us on an island, we played in the 8-foot waves. While the other adults packed survival food, I brought good coffee with a french press, and farm eggs with a cast iron skillet, extra canoe weight be damned. And bonding with the boy, of course, is always a pleasure. But next time I'm going to request a closer to home survival challenge. Perhaps in that little alligator area at Busch Gardens.

What's in Travis' Car Right Now?

Week nine. Pretty bad, but nothing dead in there.

15 empty feed bags
Various tools, sans toolbox
loose Clif bars in the back
1 skateboard, just collecting dust
A little bit of an Everglades brackish-slime smell. Beats the normal smell
More eggs! Good girls
