Stocking Up

We chuckled as our friend backed in our yard to return our chicken plucker and this is what filled his pick-up. 50 cases of canning jars. Hannaford was selling 1 quart cases for $2.50 and 1 pint cases for $2.00. The best part is he sold me some! I bought $28 worth (12 cases). BARGAIN!!!!
Speaking of the chicken plucker that was the 4 or 5th time we have lent it out and MM has used it several times. We have made our money back+++ . The kids and MM just did up 70 Cornish rocks.
For anyone new to reading this blog MM built a chicken plucker a while back, the post is here.
According to my traffic feed that I occasionally peak at this is the #1 post visited. The second most is another of MM's post is how to skin a pig. Funny how the only 2 posts he has ever done are the most popular. Well he has been talking about building a wind turbine so if and when that ever happens I am sure he'll post about. So lucky to have such a handy man!

oh, I want your friend to come and visit me with a truck full of canning jars, too! I put a note on our church bulletin board..2 responses..one had the old glass lid kind..the other had jars, but they were still full, but I could empty them on their farm..his wife has been gone at least 13 year !! Not too tempting, so I went back to the store and picked up a couple more cases..maybe I could find some bargains now...

Wow, look at those canning jars! You are going to have some fun! Glad you got a good deal!

What a great deal!!! I wish I could find some around here for that price!
But, you know what more jars means? More work!

I would have jumped on that deal! That's amazing.

Jars are expensive to buy. Wish he'd come by my house. I'm always needing canning jars as we're switching to pint now that there is just the two of us.

Now why didn't I go to Hannaford that day???

Knowing you have a homemade chicken plucker makes me want to reconsider the meat birds...hmmm.

Off to read about it...

What a great deal on the canning jars. I don't think I have ever seen them for that price. If MM does build that wind turbine please post it. We would love to put 1-2 up. Anything to save on the electric bill.:)
