    [​IMG] Sorry about the hatch Sam.
    Now that's a chicken I could buy. Easy to take care of.. just toss in the wash when needed. [​IMG]

    Has anyone here made dandelion wine? The yard is almost yellow, so many of these sunny flowers! No chemicals or sprays are used on this country lawn, ever. I'd love to make use of them before I have to mow (and it really needs mown!).

    I've got some 5 gallon glass carboys that haven't been used for beer making in a while. Ohh, now I want to make some dandelion ale! Even better!

    Today the Michigan Small Farm Council has submitted the Articles of Incorporation to the state.

    I'm proud to be listed as one of the "incorporators" and a member of the board. We represent the urban, suburban and rural small farmer who often gets ignored by the state bureaucracies.

    The group was formed as a result of our successful campaign of 2012 to keep wording out of the GAAMPs that would have outlawed farming for 80% of Michigan residents.

    I don't worry those kinds of things because I have enough to worry about.

    Well, that's the language on the Troy animal permit anyway! But if u r in Troy I think you have a good case. They don't prevent any animals by ordinance but they evaluate each application individually. I have to get an inspection and can tell you all what they look for. Also anyone need want a rooster? Silkie x ameraucauna. I can't keep him per the city.

    If people are interested in the shirt, my friend will allow us to purchase the design through her established cafe press store. We can get plain white shirts a little cheaper that way than if I set up a store. You'll be able to order in any size I think. I'll talk with her on Tuesday and verify and get more info... and pricing. I have a different shirt from her store that I drew and have had it for years so I know the quality is there.

    More on this next week!
    Raz, congratulation on being appointed to the board,
