I like to have a bowl of hot soup in a wet and cold winter night. Egg Soup is easy to make. It can be very simple (water and egg) or rich (egg, ground meat, peas and carrots).










Steps:
1. Boil 2 cups of water (or chicken soup)

2. Scramble four eggs
(add one TBSP water in "scrambled" eggs)
3. Add "scrambled" eggs into the boiling water, turn off heat, keep stirring the eggs to the clockwise direction for 30 seconds.
4. Add a little bit sea salt and serve it when it is hot

You need to turn on the heat again if you want to add carrots, peas, corns for sweetness as well as ground meat (turkey, pork, beef) for more flavor.

However, I don't use corn starch (bad for blood sugar) and/or so called "chicken powder" (similar with MSG. It makes you feel thirsty). I like to keep the cooking simple and healthy.

Pindo loves poison oak 貓熊愛吃毒葛藤

Girls are chewing cuds and scratching 小羊反芻和抓癢
羊兒抓癢的方法有好幾種: 用蹄子或頭角去角的過程殘忍且痛苦這也是為什麼我們不像別的養羊人家為了人類的方便從小去掉羊的頭角頭角除了調節體溫 (夏天散熱)抓癢之外還可以禦敵防身

Pindo is walking towards me
回應呼喚
貓熊一聽到我叫它,無論身在何處,一定飛奔前來。

乾燥溫暖的沙堆,是所有羊兒和雞兒的最愛,只是貓熊體積大,有他在,別羊是睡不到的。

羊兒每天清晨喜歡跟我到樹林深處吃草, 我稱這段時間為 "親子時間"

多數人以為羊兒都是咩咩叫,其實它們和人類一樣,每頭羊不旦平時叫聲不同,甚至可以從它們的叫聲裡,區分出了什麼情況,例如找媽媽,跟我道早安,脖子卡到柵欄裡求救,撒嬌,等等。

成語裡的 "自生自滅", 在山裡隨處可見










由於不施肥, 完全靠家禽家畜, 野生動物 (野鹿, 野熊, 野火雞, 老鷹, 野鳥 .....) 的糞尿, 和雨雪, 風霜, 陽光滋養,







 
每天在樹林裡行走時, 隨處可見一株株小樹冒出頭,







 

   
以前還傻傻的用圍籬圈起來保護, 後來多到完全無力一一圈欄, 真的只有讓它們物競天擇, 看各自的造化了
 









除了花草樹木, 水果也一樣, 或許是鳥兒, 或許是清風, 也或許是雞羊吃或沾黏在羽毛上的種子, 被帶到了野地,















 每年都有西瓜, (Ugly Melon),,









蘑菇
 





 

   
甚至無花果苗冒出,







 


開漂亮紫花, 甜嫩多汁的野豆藤, 最被羊兒青睞







 

它們的生命力十分強韌, 滿山坡怒長, 像這樣不需人類照料, 還長得好吃好看的植物, 是最被歡迎的 "野草" 了







 
被用在蔬果園裡雞羊肥料裡的果種比較幸運, 會在豐裕且被周密保護的環境裡茁壯, 野果每年都結得很好, 反倒是花大錢買來一公兩母的 Hardy Kiwi 野獼猴桃,
 




 


費時五年, 今夏才好不容易看到了寶寶 











菜圃每年不但輪種各式菜蔬, 調整土壤的酸鹼度, 同時會實驗不同方式, 讓植物互助合作,

 










例如今年就不搭豆棚,


 








而是犁妥圃床, 周邊堆高雞羊肥料, 以利肥水流向中央的種床,











先播玉米,







 

兩週後再灑豆粒,
 








讓長高的玉蜀黍, 
 








充當豆藤的支架, 互相成長











山裡無論吃的用的, 都儘量回收再生,
 








老葉果皮,









切剁給雞羊當大餐,











朽木和紙類當柴火燒掉, 幾乎沒有什麼需要扔垃圾桶的,











遇有香甜的蔬果種子, 就洗淨挑選,
 








留肥大健康的下來, 作為明年的家菓母種
