One of today’s tasks is to prepare a new batch of suet for our feathered friends. It’s an enjoyable quick thing to do while the bread is rising. It’s a mix of our own tallow, peanut butter, brown sugar, bird seed, cranberries, raisins, nuts,cereal, cooked rice…anything we happen to have on hand. It’s a hit with the chickens too.
We hunt yard sales for old muffin tins and bowls for water dishes. Old mini tin pie pans get reused until the birds pick them apart too.
A little bird watching from the kitchen table is in order now, then get the bread in the oven.
