It's been almost 2 weeks since I made my first Swiss cheese and finally it's starting to swell like it's growing holes inside. I guess the swelling is the gas building up inside. Maybe you can see in this picture how it's a little rounded on the top and bottom.
My broody hen is still sitting on her nest. I think it's been 3 days now on this clutch of eggs. I've kind of lost track since she has switched a few times.
I'm getting about 5 quarts of milk a day milking just once a day. I wonder what I'll do with all the milk once the babies are weaned and I have to milk twice a day. You'll be seeing lots more pictures of cheese.
Here are some of the cheeses aging in our basement.
