Another day on the Farm -a little of this and that.
We got a good rain today. I have another 3 hens sitting on eggs (6, 12, 6) and 9 chicks: we’ll have chicken this winter. Peaches, our milk cow, is giving us a lot of milk, now we’re getting 3 1/2+ gallons. Time for me to make ice cream again. Would you like some? 🙂 Tommy’s doing better, still at times having a hard time breathing, but this to is getting better. I will be picking green beans again in the morning. The Lord has really blessed our garden and farm, thank you, Lord.
1 whole egg
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoon vinegar
1 cup oil
Put all ingredients in the blender, except for 3/4 cup of oil. Blend together well. While blending, slowly add the remaining oil until the mayonnaise is thick.
1 dozen corn tortilla and oil for frying
Cut tortillas into triangles ( like a pie) and fry a few at a time in a pan of hot oil. Salt to taste.
** Variation** Try frying flour tortillas the same way and sugar mixture.

Plant sweet basil around your doorways as this repels flies. I know this works, even on a farm. I have a net bag on my screen door and fill it with sweet basil leaves every few days ( leaves- the snips I take off every few day, so it’ll grow bigger, some leaves get dried for winter use).
