Farming gone bad

Back when we lived in Washington, we'd feel all smug when we were eating our own eggs from the backyard coop, maybe with a little cider we'd pressed from scavenged apples.

Nowadays the majority of our food at most meals is home grown.  "Farm food", as we call it, is not something to look forward to in Henry's mind.   However, there are exceptions.   These popcorn balls are entirely home-grown -- the popcorn, maple syrup, and butter.  Popped on homegrown fuel.  We even harvested our own salt, scraping it from the horses after a hard and sweaty day's work.  Okay -- maybe not the last part.  

Making our own junk food is fun.
