1st Official Homegrown Meal

So today marks the day that we officially ate a meal that came entirely from our backyard, minus the sesame oil for the stir fry. And I must say it was great. Ok I may be a bit bias, but im not trying to be. It really was delicious. We picked some swiss chard that I never had before and threw in some sugar snap peas, along with a few eggs from the chickens and it was absolutely perfect. The swiss chard was a pleasant surprise. It was like eating Pak Choy and spinach which I both love. We have heard that swiss chard can be bitter but there was no such bitterness present. We picked young to medium leaves and wife was impressed how they maintained there integrity under heat. So with the sugar snap peas and eggs to polish of the stir fry we had a nice little side dish that I will never forget.

Awesome! Congrats! That is a huge deal!

Can you give us an update on your chickens soon? I'm really interested in how they adjusted and are laying and interacting, etc.
