retty much been on house arrest for the past couple of weeks but I wrote my physics exam today and don't have another exam until the 29th so I finally have a little bit of breathing room. Really looking forward to getting out in the yard without feeling guilty because I should be studying! Hopefully the weather will cooperate but I'll get out even if its raining.
In spite of exams, we did manage to get some stuff done around here in the past couple weeks. We have a large yard that we started working on last year but we still have a long way to go. This year, I'm very excited to add EGGS to our crops! We converted an old greenhouse we weren't using into a chicken
coop which our new chickens are happily calling home now. We got some polish chicks last weekend which we're going to hand raise in hopes that they'll be more people social than the older hens. We were only planning on keeping one of them but didn't think it would be very nice for the chick to be on her own so we got 3. So if anyone is thinking about getting chickens, I'll probably have a few available in a few months. I'm including a photo of my favorite. She chirps like a cricket so I think I'm going to call her Cricket.
We have lettuce, radishes and carrots in the ground now and beans and some yellow climbey things in pots which I'm going to use for my bean tee-pee and to cover the ugly back fence. We have garlic and 3 kinds of potatoes in tires which is supposed to be good for production so we'll see...
Need to put the finishing touches on the coop and do some more bed prep tomorrow. I guess I should do some laundry too but playing farmer is way more fun :)
