Eliza, our fairly new doe, was the first rabbit I ever named. I never planned on naming the rabbits as they are food animals but it just happened. I certainly won’t name the kits, that is just asking for trouble, but George also just ended up with a name.
Like his future mate Eliza he is a Silver Fox rabbit from Erica and Joel over at http://emancipationacres.com/ Hopefully we will be getting Eliza breed from another farm in the next few weeks and we will be going into the winter with at least SOME rabbit in the freezer.
We should have no problem with tomatoes and sauce this year.
And to handle all that putting up I finally ordered my dream canner. The All American 921, a 21 quart all aluminum beauty that I have been lusting after for ages. Almost makes me glad I wore out my old canner last season. 🙂
Not sure how this potato experiment is going to end up…
Now off to try and find a good cheese recipe that does not need a cheese press and is not mozzarella, I hate kneading that hot “pre-cheese”. Oh and last weeks soap turned out wonderful and smells amazing, the lotion and salt scrub were a hit as well.
