Posted this in the Poultry section, but as it pertains to the Raleigh, NC area, posting it here. I know many gardeners also have chickens. A local person is trying to gauge the interest level in him stocking and selling organic poultry feed. It would be app. $33/bag, and he needs to sell at least 44 bags every 6 weeks or so to ensure fresh stock. If you would be interested in buying some for your backyard flock, drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we all get together, maybe we can make this happen!
As of today, organic chicken feed should be available at the Ace Hardware Store at Seaboard Station, just off Capitol Blvd, near downtown Raleigh. This is a "trial run." So if enough folks don't buy it, he will no longer stock it. Being produced locally, also, I believe. So all you locavores, who want your feed and food local and organic, get on down there and buy some. And then you'll have organic poop for your garden (You knew I would tie this off-topic post into gardening, didn't you???!!!!!).
No, I haven't Lavina--I've not been on DG as much as usual over the past winter, either, though, so she may be around and I haven't seen her posts. Definitely haven't seen her in person. Going to the Raleigh Garden Club plant sale tomorrow--might see some folks there. How's life at your house?
Missed my by about two miles, though we were exactly where it hit on the south side just a few minutes prior. Stupidly, we had no idea we were in danger, and did not have a radio or tv on, though you could tell it was going to storm. Had no idea tornadoes were imminent. Were downtown for the Earth Day festival, then decided to run some errands right around Saunders St and MLK/Western area. Left the area, drove the 5 minutes home, the power flickered so we turned on the TV, and they were just showing it on the ground. I thought we had sirens here---did you ever hear any when you lived here?
I live at the end of the earth so no alarms just watching news out of New Bern and they said tornado comming thru woods in Arapahoe headed to Bayboro, well out TV went off just as that was said and either a jet from Cherry Point or the tornado went over the top of us.Bad wind and rain for about 10 minutes.So I stressed and got out the ice cream.
Our house in Raleigh is OK.
