I ran out of room for all the milk that I have frozen for soap. I went out and got a freezer. I need to get that into the house.
I got in in the house and now I need to get it down the stairs.
Tadaaaa! Got it down.
All plugged in. Later tonight I will move all the milk to the chest freezer. I will also take inventory so I know how many batch's I can make. I am still getting milk from the goat lady. I kind of hinted that I may stop getting milk as I thought that I had plenty. She didn't like that, she hates to toss the milk out. I think that now that I have room I will keep getting milk and freezing it till the chest freezer is full.
After I got that all done, I went and collected eggs. I then took the eggs (Six eggs) and put
them next to the broody hens. The hens looked, (Cluuuuuk, how in the heck did these eggs roll out?!) and with their beaks, tucked the eggs in under them. Tomorrow, when they get off the nest to go eat and drink some water, I will remove the old eggs and toss them. Now the new eggs, not sure if they are have been fertilized. Remember, my rooster is a bantam, I do not provide a step ladder for him. I will also do that for the eggs that I collect tomorrow. They will be sitting on between 10 and 14 eggs.
I am the cheese man. (Woman) I got about 1/2 cup of soft fresh cheese from 1/2 gallon of milk!
I need to get real cheese cloth that is used for cheese making. Not the cheap stuff that I got from WalMart. I probably would have had more cheese, but some of the curds were between the layers and when I tried to scrape them off with a rubber spatula, I was then picking of thin fabric fibers from the cheese cloth.
I was asked if I would try and sell the cheese? No, no can do, nor do I want too. For one thing, you can't sell "raw milk" products without a licences and also I would not want the hassle of setting up a business that sells a food product. (Bunch of inspections and stuff)
