Hi friends! Want to chat chickens and canning, all up close and personal like? Let’s! Do! It! I’ll be teaching classes on both topics over the summer, and would love to meet some of you kind, dear small measure readers real time. Here’s the details for what, when, where, and why (you already know the “who” ;^) ):
