May 14 2017

Well, I was working a second job, them quit. They were under the impression I should work 60+ hours a week, and yo yo shifts.( example, work 2 to 1030, have a day off then work 5 am to 5 pm). No thank you.
We are preparing to p,ant in the garden. Hubby and son #4 got a propane torch to take care of the weeds.

It was a big weed infested mess prior.
I am hoping to plant this weekend.

Here are my chickens. The one on the left, with the three red hens is a rooster. He is super sweet, not very loud.

The black chicks are my newest additions. They are sex links. They are about two months old. I have had them in the hen house in a pen the last 2-3 weeks. The lousy thing is, Tuesday our temperatures drop to the low thirties. I will have to move them back inside the hen house. Silly weather.
I now have 14 chickens. I enjoy my flock.
My house faces east west, I finally decided to plant some shrubs. My hope is that they will fill out and help block the sun, which will help keep the house cooler.

This Friday we will get some more dirt, then apply Mulch to the top. I may add another row of bricks. I still haven't decided.

  1. Hello,

    I would like to be more self-sufficient but we live on a small plot. I do have a small garden.

    Nice home setting.
