Plan your flock; I found this website that tells you all about which colors of eggs different breeds lay and which are good layers. I spent way too long daydreaming about which breeds we'll get when we have room for a dozen birds or so. Definitely some of those dark, chocolate brown egg layers... Try your hand at foraging! If you live in Portland, this is a helpful website. Or you could check out Stalking The Wild Asparagus or Edible Wild Plants. And if you're not feeling all that adventurous, you could always combine an exercise in weeding dandelions with getting dinner on the table. We often ate dandelion greens with vinegar when I was a kid.
Remember making tin can phones as a kid? Rig up a set for your own kids; they'll love it just as much!
Hope your weekend's lovely, creative and jam-packed with good things!
