Chickens, chickens, chickens everywhere. In Connecticut we stopped by my girlfriend’s relatives to see the production. They were getting about 80 chickens ready for eating and freezing. I think not everyone wants to see the pictures, but most of us like to eat free range home grown chicken. It was quite amazing to see.
My friend has peacocks that roam the property and were fed leftover pancakes or bread. The pancakes were fresh home made. I don’t know how there were any leftovers but I think she made some especially for the peacocks.
Picking strawberries in the town I used to live in was fun!
I traveled to Pennsylvania next. The trucks through New Jersey were aggressive and the worst I had experienced in my cross country travels. I was happy to arrive at my Aunt’s farm.
I was greeted by LuluBelle and Daisy.
We picked asparagus and lettuce from the garden. My Aunt has about 25 chickens that wander the grounds. One day they had to stay inside the barn because we went to the Reunion. I told them about chickens that never got to go outside. They seemed indifferent.
My Aunt and I drove to Schafferstown to get 2 smoked tongues.
We went to the family reunion and see alpaca, deer and more food than you can imagine. People related to me that I had never seen before were there. First a lot of eating and then everyone introduced themselves.
Roots Farmer’s Market always has lots to see and good food to eat.
Visiting Lititz, PA
My cousin and I visited the quaint town of Lititz, PA. We shopped, ate lunch, toured the Julius Sturgis pretzel factory, went to the Wilbur Buds Chocolate Store and had a great day.
