We made a turkey tractor and built it similar to the chicken tractor we made last year… just made it a little taller for the turkeys. Today we’re moving the poults into it and then moving the mama hen and her chicks into the old tractor.
The squash bugs have returned! Out of all the garden pests, I have to say they are the most frustrating to deal with… and the most creepy! I had a huge infestation on one of my plants and got creeped out, so I blasted them with spray. Next thing I knew, I used a whole half gallon on one plant. Good news is there were dead squash bugs when I was finished… but will my plant survive having that much neem oil on it?
Happy 4th of July and a quick update.
We’re tired of the hens roosting on their nesting boxes and pooping in them so we’re trying something different… but will they like it?
The kids challenged each other to see who could solve the Hanayama Enigma puzzle first with the loser having to sit in a tub of ice water. Brooke started out far ahead… Dylan caught up and managed to pull off a win. He happily fixes up a tub of ice water just for her…
In order to show chickens at the fair, they have to be tested for Pullorum Typhoid and Avian Flu. Normally they’re tested the day we take them to the fair but this year we had to get it done earlier so that meant we had to take them on a little road trip.
Our turkey hen is laying again so we decided we should move her back over with our tom. Someone figured out the Enigma Hanayama puzzle… so that means someone has to sit in a tub of ice water.
The kids challenged themselves to see who would be the first to solve the Enigma Hanayama cast puzzle, which is one of the most difficult ones. The challenge continues…
Brooke and Dylan battle it out to see who can solve the Extremely difficult Hanayama Enigma puzzle first. Looser has to sit in a tub of ice water! Who Wins? Well, you’ll just have to watch…
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.
