Getting the turkey and chicken we processed packaged and ready for the freezer.
Processing day is never an easy day but this time was a little harder.
So several years ago I found this.. what seemed like a cute idea on Pinterest for my garden but… let’s just say it looked better on Pinterest. Plus we’re giving you a sneak peak of Dylan’s latest project!
Miley takes over the vlog and takes you along while she does her chores.
Miley’s been interested in experimenting with different recipes to make with dandelions. We’ve been searching for recipes and came across one for dandelion bread so we decided to try it.
Finally the day has come to move the pigs out to their pen…. and I do believe they approve.
Ever since we put the green house up I’ve been wanting to hang out inside it and listen to it rain. Well, I finally got to do that!
We’re introducing the tomatoes to the green house. I want to get a shade cover soon because it gets way too hot for them to be out there full time yet. We are also planting flowers and putting our pepper plants into bigger cups.
Oh this wind… will it ever calm down so we can get stuff done???
The meat birds are big enough to free range now so I’m turning them out and putting the layers in the chicken tractor. After that we got some planting done in the garden… finally!
Doug and Stacy, over at Off Grid With Doug and Stacy, are doing an awesome giveaway for Youtube creators. One of the requirements to enter is that you make a video about why you watch their channel. Here’s the reasons why I enjoy watching their channel..
One day Miley and I were outside talking about all the dandelions. I told her that they’re edible and used for several different things. She thought making dandelion flower tea sounded interesting so we made some.
It’s been a while since we’ve shown you some of our animals so today we’re taking you along as we do our morning chores.
We have hard, clay soil here. I’ve been working for several years to build up the soil in my garden and have come a long way. I just need something that will give it that extra boost and I think I found it.
Most of our seed sprouted and have grown enough that we need to get them transplanted.
We had snow and freezing temps but it was cozy warm inside our cattle panel greenhouse… actually it was a little too warm!
We finally got some snow and that made someone pretty happy!
Brooke is getting into making and selling crafts. We’re opening a shop on my blog, and she will have lots of things available soon. She made these cute little bunny baskets for Easter and since Easter is coming soon, she wanted to go ahead and get them out.
We’re having the worst drought that we’ve ever had in a very long time in our area of Kansas. There’s nothing left in our pastures so the goats are constantly escaping into the wheat fields where the grass is quite literally greener on the other side of the fence.
For Dylan’s birthday we decided to go to the Strataca Salt Mines in Hutchinson, Kansas. It was an adventure like no other and one that we highly recommend!
We worked on the cattle panel greenhouse more today and were hoping to get it done. Things went slower than planned, so we still have a ways to go to get it done.
