Mom's Machine ~~ Warm Heart Wednesday No. 016
The chicken end was pretty much Mom's, the feeding and growing and the care of the eggs that the hens would lay. Saturday night found her cleaning the eggs that were produced for the week. Often I would 'help' her as it was a good time to have Mom just for myself.
The chart above is hard to read but it say that eggs are not sized individually, but rather sized by the combined weight of one dozen eggs. That explains that each of the packages, from Kroger and from Trader Joe's each contained a few eggs weighing less than 24 ounces.

The View from the Top of the Ladder
This was so interesting! I always wondered how eggs were graded. My maternal grandmother had a large chicken farm in Pennsylvania when I was a child, but we lived in NY and so I was never around enough to learn the trade. I remember her fresh eggs were the best I've ever eaten.
I like the little story of helping your mother in order to have her undivided attention for a little while.
These stories are wonderful Jim!
Thank you for warming my heart for week 16.
