eat and eaten

Sunday, November 4:

The Rhode Island Reds which have been devouring whatever chickens devour around here – bugs, none too many this time of year, grass, grain, milk, cooked vegetables – without making donations in the egg basket made the great Transition on Saturday.  Eleven quarts of canned chicken and six of broth put an end to the freeloaders.   Skin chickens for canning; the less fat in the jar, the more likely it is to seal.

Winter is not so far away; the carrots, spinach and lettuce will need covers soon.
