This morning I had to laugh. I fixed breakfast, then when Vince left for work, I fed the dogs, which means putting Rita out to eat. The minute she’s done eating, she wants to come back in but I leave her out til I get done with the chickens. That gives her time to do her “bizness” but she’s ready to come back in the minute she’s finished eating.
As soon as it was light enough to see where I was walking, I went out to take care of the chickens and make sure their feed and water was good enough to get them through the day. Next, check on Boots, clean out the litter box and make sure he has food and fresh water.
Then, I came back inside, showered and began feeding the stuff in jars!
Left side, front and back – two jars of sourdough, different varieties.
Middle front is the kefir that I strained out. Middle back is the new milk added to the kefir grains to ferment today.
Right front is water kefir to go into the fridge for second ferment. I’ve added raw sugar so that’s why it’s that color. Right back is fresh water kefir that will brew for the next couple of days.
These are the water kefir grains. Like the milk kefir grains, they will grow so I’m going to weight them with each new addition and see how much and how quickly they grow.
All the critters are fed. All the jars are fed. I can knit for a few minutes before it’s time to begin working on lunch for Vince! There surely are a lot of things to feed around here!
