Do you remember we harvested honey recently. After we spun out the honey in the frames, we were left with lots of honey stuck in the cappings. We hung this in muslin to allow the honey to drain. The huge bag of muslin with the remaining wax has been floating around my kitchen for a good couple of weeks. Today I got sick of it so it became time to put it all in a saucepan to deal with the beeswax.
Last week I saw my friend and she told me she would like to give our goats back. She has ended up overstocked. So now it has become time. Our children are older. I
Kim from Little Black Cow will be my goat mentor. She could give me lots of advice. Initially we will be bring in feed. We will try and keep their diets similar to what they are used to at first but apparently Daisy could do with a bit of weight on. What do I feed a lactating goat to fatten her up? Off to the library soon to see if I can borrow a good book or two. I've been devouring all the goat sections in my own books.
And last but not least, my bantam went clucky a few days ago so it was time to get a hold of some fertile eggs. I prepared her shed with fresh bedding and picked her up to pop the eggs under her.
If you have any good zucchini recipes please link through to them in the comments. I think we could all use more ways to eat them at this glut time of year!
