This week has been full of projects and harvests. I am currently splattered in paint as I write this!
I have been elbow deep in the Crib to Coop repurposing project. The total cost of the project was $100. Crib + $100 = super cute chicken tractor, not too shabby! All I need to do is add the nesting box and an entry door. I am super excited to show you all how it turned out. I will be releasing it on Friday, so don’t miss it!
The crops are growing well, I harvested a fantastic squash poquito which I will be having for dinner tonight. I am now harvesting beans every day, I need to freeze some to keep for use in the cooler months.
There is lots of growth here on the homestead.
My tomato plants are now taller than me with yellow blossoms, but haven’t formed any tomatoes yet. They are super late this year, anyone know what the problem could be?
I added some “stepable” plants (mini-ivy, creeping thyme) to the chicken coop and covered them with netting so they would have some time to get established before the chickens got a hold of them. I am hoping this will allow some more color in the pen and not just end up being a tasty snack for the girls. Since these plants are designed to be hardy enough for people to walk on them, I am hoping they can hold up to the always starving chickens.
I can’t believe it is already mid-June. This long awaited summer is flying by way to fast. I am trying to enjoy each and every sunny day.
I will be releasing our big announcement July 1st for our super special addition to the homestead. I can’t wait to tell you!
Until next time…
