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!
We’ve had our first hard freeze so our gardening season has come to an end, but for the chickens, the work is just beginning!
We tried an experiment to see how well sweet potatoes grow in containers. Today we harvested them. Did we get a lot? Do we feel it worked good? Would we plant them in containers again? Well, you’ll just have to watch…
It’s just been one of those years, we got the garden in late and it’s been slow to get going. Now we’re happy to say that things are really starting to grow well and produce so it may end up being a good gardening season after all.
It’s been 4 months since she planted her potatoes in laundry baskets, and now it’s time to harvest them! How many did she get? Does she think planting them in laundry baskets works?
We’re getting ready to plant something new in the garden and give you an update on the turkey eggs… but wait… we have to rescue kittens first! As we always say, there’s never a dull moment on the homestead!
So, how are those potatoes that my mom planted in laundry baskets doing? Well… you’ll just have to watch! Oh, and we also show you all the other good stuff she has growing in containers.
Last fall we had a huge infestation of grubs in the garden. Now that spring has arrived they’re back but not as bad as they were. After researching different ways to get rid of them, I decided to try using nematodes.
What is hypocebrosis and what’s the cure for it? Well…you’ll just have to watch…
We planned to take a little time off from vlogging so that I could get my classes done, but this day is so beautiful we just had to share…
