A few more farm photos

I liked this shot of the chickens hanging out in their pen. Is this called roosting?
Martine made yummy Oatmeal Spice Molasses Crisps: Mix and cream: 1 1/2 sticks of butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup molasses and one egg.  In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients: 1 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup rolled oats, 1 tsp ginger, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Combine wet and dry ingredients and drop spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 for about 8-10 minutes.

These are horseradish roots that Martine and Jack sold at the farmer's market. They also gave us some of the home-prepared horseradish sauce. It's pretty easy to do, and delicious if you like spicy. You peel the roots and put them in a blender with some vinegar. Blend them up (do not stick your nose into the blender container!) and save them in a glass jar. The sauce should keep well for weeks, maybe months. It tastes great with beef and I'm not sure what else.

Woohoo, I captured a photo of Sunny in the doghouse near the end of the trip.
