Best flavor today: mint squared/sweet herb tea (it was better after steeping and cooling, I've been drinking it constantly today)
Thing most missed: cheese!!!!!
Also fruit, but mostly cuz I always crave fruit when I'm ill.
Breakfast: chicken eggs, scrambled with African Blue Basil, tea, water, (pill taken: though part of me snickered and went "I didn't grow these here")
Snack: hard boiled duck egg. Turns out the girls had 15 unfertilized eggs in there. I stole them all and moved the ducks to the chicken pen*, since at this rate if they lay any fertilized eggs they won't finish brooding in time for me to use the pen for the pullets.
I wish pics could capture how very yellow this yolk is. Such a watery nest. ;P
Dinner: greens, lightly steamed with rosemary in the water; mint, dandelion, curly and flat leaved parsley, chives, arugula, wood sorrel, and chrysanthemum, dandelion, and marigold petals, served with sliced hard boiled duck eggs.
Not bad really.
*In fact, if Lucy hadn't gotten loose during the pen change and wasn't currently hanging out on the roof, I would call this a good day. As it is, I'm very tense and worried and finding it hard to celebrate the fact I didn't go very hungry. I've left the old duck pen open, with food and water, in the hopes she will come down to roost...or for breakfast in the morning, but I don't expect she will come back to me and it is breaking my heart. :(
For those who would also like to eat petals, I recommend this site as a good beginning. I like their chart and reference it often. :)
