We always enjoy visiting the farm, called Wolf Meeting Farm. (historical fact: The settlers met on May 2, 1843 to form the first provisional government. The meetings were called first to address the problem with the wolves in the area, but went on to draw up documents of government.) Those meetings were held where their farm is today.

These are the dear little eggs she brought me last night.
Here you can see the size in relationship to regular size eggs. They are really quite small.
This french egg holder sits on my counter from Christmas to Easter. After emptying the shells I place them here to dry, ready to paint.

To use this to remove the contents of the shell I drill a tiny hole in the top or bottom of the egg shell.
(I am showing the picture on the box, because I'm lacking a third hand to hold my camera, the egg, and my pump all at the same time!)
But in the end, I get to enjoy the results of all the work. I have a good breakfast and lots of nice shells to paint. I've been enjoying quiche, custard, and scrambled eggs, and plan on lots more during the days leading up to Easter. BTW do you know how to avoid watery eggs? Never use milk. Always use a little water instead, when stirring up the raw eggs. Lovely.
