Oh good gravy, these ducks! The saga of the big mess continues. I headed to Huntsville for a photography meet-up and then a few updates. Also, a Q & A is coming, so send me your questions! (Family friendly of course.)
In this episode I shared a couple hauls from Costco and Tractor Supply. I planted some trees that I got a great deal on, and the dogs had a hay day.
This is the first in a series of special Wednesday Coffee Chats, where I talk about all of those dirty little secrets people may not realize before they start homesteading.
This weekend we FINALLY got the bantams’ run area completed. We haven’t had a weekend without rain since January, so we jumped on the first chance we got. Then later I headed into Huntsville, AL for a photo walk. This time we went to an old, historic cemetery.
I am often asked how many eggs chickens will lay – or how many chickens someone would need for a specific number of eggs. In today’s Coffee Chat, I discuss the topic.
Meet a young family in northern Alabama who became “accidental farmers.”
It never fails, every time someone brings up washing their farm eggs, people jump all over them to NOT wash the eggs. Well, some times you just got to wash those yucky eggs! I explained why in today’s episode, as well as how I wash them.
Today we had a porch chat and I shared about some of my chicken related plans for 2018. Mr. Smith headed out of town…and there’s a giveaway happening!
I’ve been asked by several folks recently about the chickens. In particular, how am I still getting eggs, and what am I feeding them? Today I took a few minutes to talk about it.
It’s not all fun and games on a homestead. There are times when unpleasant things happen and it is completely out of your control. This is one of those times.
I was in a bit of a mood and well…went on a little bit of a rant over something I too often see in homesteading communities online.
In this week’s coffee chat, I talked about some of the plans for the future of our homestead. What animals do we plan on adding, and what is the hold-up?
