Default MMTPT #252 ~ May 28, 2013 ~ Old MacStamper Had a Farm

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and challenge #252

Old MacStamper Had a Farm

Old MacStamper had a farm, oh indeed he did.
And with a moo, moo here, a quack quack there and all the baas and all the oinks, oh what a din, oh what a cacophony. Pass the earplugs, please!

No wonder theyíre so noisy Ė theyíre all so hungry; and when they see Old MacStamper coming along theyíre hoping he has some food for them, (and we all know that the loudest ones get the most attention!).

Old MacStamper is hoping he has enough food for them, too! I know that over here, with a bad summer last year and a long hard winter, the farmers have been struggling to find enough feed to see them through till the grass is growing again, and I believe itís the same in parts of the States too. Even for those who can afford to buy it in, itís still hard to find. When I was doing some research for this, I even read of an Iowa farmer who had developed a sawdust based feed.

We can help Old MacStamper! Teapotters to the rescue again!!

Challenge Translation:

Donít bring along too many farm animals Ė a couple of Curtís cousins or a ewe or two is fine but donít bring a whole herd or flock of anything because we surely donít have enough to feed that many. But to really help out, we also need to bring something for the animals to eat. Long, lush luxurious grass, a rolling prairie, a bale of hay, some maize, some marigolds, swedes or turnips, some carrots for a tasty snackÖI think, girls, that we'll pass on the sawdust, though!

* STOP PRESS!! I've just got back from a holiday in Greece, and I read that the farmers there sometimes use prickly pears as extra cattle feed, once they burn the prickles off. So if anybody had a prickly pear for MMTPT240, please feel free to use it again .
