RE: Food cost comparisons
At least I'm being mistaken for a wonderful person like Ferdi instead of someone like that creepy Rev guy.

Just visiting.

Ya know, maybe I should start a new thread on this, but I am planning to write a book on growing veggies. I started an experiment this past winter. Even though I have 160 acres, I decided to grow most of my veggies on my deck in pots. The idea was to develop a simple system that anyone, including apartment dwellers, could use for growing at a minimal cost. So far, the experiment has been a raging success.

Oh wow! How many chickens and rabbits do you have?? My friend has chickens, she mixes egg shells into their feed in the winter months I don't really understand why.

She sells eggs for around $1.50 a dozen depending on the time of the year (guess they don't lay as much in winter?). I sometimes buy from her -- but not all the time. Grocer is more convenient at times. Still for some reason I never thought that she'd eat her chickens. (I know I'm such a city girl).

She also raises goats and just started making her own cheese.

I'd love to have a garden...growing veggies in pots tho, never thought about that.

Ground up egg shell added to their feed is to give them more calcium.
Your friend is probably finding eggs with very thin/no shells.
The shells are an excellent source of calcium for the chickens and helps strengthen the eggs.

Ouch.
