Lobstah for Lunch

August 19th, 2013

Just in case you didn’t listen to last week’s Cultivate Simple, we’re on a 2 week break. We have visitors here this week and there’s something else going on next weekend as well. As you can imagine, with visitors from out of state lobster must be consumed. Around here, nothing goes to waste.  That’s the beauty of having chickens, pigs, and dogs around. When we were done feasting, the dog, chickens and pigs feasted as well.

Having animals is like having instant composters, they turn extra garden produce and kitchen scraps into eggs, bacon, or protection in the case of dogs. We also love that feeding these kinds of food to the animals makes them happy, you can really see a deep happiness when you bring out lobster scraps!

Do your animals have a favorite scrap?
