2012 Loomis Eggplant Festival

November 1st, 2012
Laughing Duck Farm | Blog

The animals were very popular at our booth as was the solar oven. Folks were amazed that I was cooking our dinner in it with no electricity. We even tried baking chicken and quail eggs in their shells and were snacking on them through the day; next time I will remember some mayo to make lazy man deviled eggs. There was a good amount of interest in both the PLFA and an introductory workshop that I will host at the end of October at our farm.

Lots of folks were amazed at how small the adult Coturnix quail really are, and how they laid such beautiful eggs. Heather helped all day and enjoyed sharing the quail and snacking the most. Pat Miller brought lots of grapes for folks to snack on through the day. She helped Loomis form an ordinance to allow chickens in town.
