Unwelcome Visitor in the Coop, Crazy Easy Bread Dough and More! Week 4 2018

I decided to open up the crock and check to see how the sauerkraut was coming along. Also, I talk about reorganizing and upcoming videos!

I found this amazing bread dough recipe! In addition to a loaf of bread, you can use it to make a variety of things like cinnamon rolls, pizza, bagels, foccacia, and more! I even experimented with making tortillas and they turned out great.

Oh no… there’s an uninvited possum in the chicken coop!! I know he’s pretty much harmless so I try to be calm, cool and collected…

First Snow of the Season, Getting Organized and More! Week 2 2018

Miley’s wishes finally came true… we got our first snow of the season!

One of our goals we’ve had since starting our homestead is to downsize to just stuff we need. We’ve worked on it some, but this year we want to focus on it more. Brooke had a day off and invited me to go out of town with her so we could shop for a few things to help us become more organized.

Syrup or jam… water or sky… river or road.. it can be anything you want it to be.

Happy New Year! Week 52 2017

Happy New Year!!

With the weather turning even colder, we decided we needed to make a better shelter for Ollie. Of course, he was there supervising and making sure it was built to his approval.

The bunnies are now 7 weeks old and it’s time for them to be weaned so we’re moving them to their own cages.

We’re getting more cages set up for the bunnies because it’s time to wean them. It’s challenging to say the least because it’s so cold out!
