We’re Gonna Destroy This Straw Bale! || Deep Mulch Gardening || We’re Having A Hay Day!

With our new routine we didn’t have the time to collect leaves in the fall, like we have in the past. So I was happy to fine a good deal on a large round bale of straw to mulch the garden with. I don’t know who was more excited… me finally getting the garden mostly mulched… or the kids getting to destroy the bale… or the chickens getting to scratch around in it. One they for sure, a HAY day was had by all!

Garden Tour, MORE Chicks Hatch, A Surprise In the Garden and More! Week 25 2018

We have an awesome surprise in the garden… it’s something Miley has been waiting for for a long time.

We’re Getting Our Rabbit Bred, Candling Eggs and Trying Not To Be Too Suspicious! Week 9 2017

We’ve been wanting to venture into meat rabbits but are unsure if it would be something we’d like to do. Instead of getting a buck we’re taking our rabbit back to the place we got her to have her bred, that way we can try it one time to see if it would be something we’d want to continue to do.

Our eggs are 8 days along so we’re candling them. We made guesses on whether or not each egg is fertile and plan to see if we’re right once they hatch. Let us know what you think.

A bunny who doesn’t want to be filmed… Neville gets lost… and a trip to the creek for leaves… lots happening on the homestead today!
