That’s the key theme of this past week’s mini-vacation: lots of progress on yard projects. The chicken coop has walls! And a roof! And a door!!! Which is good because the little ladies are feathering up and growing quickly. They will need to move out of the brooder box pretty soon.

The veggie garden has really taken off- squash and pumpkin plants are looking good, and I added a second row of fencing for the peas. Sadly, I never did get around to planting the green beans and imagine its probably too late now.

And to top it off- we just got a compost bin built- FINALLY!!! We just used some leftover wood and plastic fencing i found out in the old shed outback- free always seems like a good way to do something! I have been after this for quite awhile…who knew I could get so happy over a “garbage bin” 🙂


Gotta love a productive weekend.
