I haven't posted one of these for a while — thought I would see if I could get back in the habit.

For today:
  • Reset traps for rats in barn
  • Feed chickens
  • Gather eggs
  • Wash eggs (done by [livejournal.com profile] helwen)
  • Candle eggs
  • Sort eggs by weight
  • Deliver eggs to hardware store (for resale) and local restaurant (with Helwen)
  • Make granulated maple sugar for cotton candy
No, really, that granulated sugar iswas in process — I'm typing this on my laptop next to the industrial stove.

Tomorrow:
  • Feed chickens
  • Gather eggs
  • Wash, candle, and sort eggs
  • Deliver more eggs to hardware store
  • Add fresh bedding to hen nests
  • Sift granulated sugar
  • Kung Fu class in evening
  • Dinner out after class


ETA: First batch of granulated sugar is done.

How many eggs a day do you wash and how do you wash them?

About 50 a day -- I put them in a dilute solution of white vinegar, scrub off any nest bedding that sticks to them with a soft brush, rinse them, and then space them out on a tray lined with a white towel to dry.

I should note that I use a soft brush so that I remove as little of the bloom as possible. Helps keep the eggshell sealed.
