It’s hard not living on a big ol’ farm, but living the way we do. We constantly get people saying “but you live in town” or ” well you can’t have (filling the blank with whatever animal) at your house!” Which is totally true! But here’s the kicker, we are doing so much with what we have! Here are a few examples of things we did around here just this weekend!
I gave Izzy dog a nice solar powered fur cut! It was so sunny, so her clippers were being powered by the sun!
While gathering eggs I found our first Easter egger egg in the coop! She takes most of the winter off from egg laying!
Next I threw some banana peels into the worm bin in the basement and realized I need to clean out the worm castings. Their 💩 is great plant food!
It has rained a lot here this winter, instead of snowing. So, the area around the coop was super muddy and gross. I got to haul more and more buckets of wood chips to their area. It looks so much better!
At work Friday, these apples were being given away because they had some bad spots.
At first, I was going to just chuck them in to the chickens. Instead, the chickens just got the bad spots and I made some yummy apple muffins! Zero waste breakfast tomorrow!
Last night I realized I needed to make up some yogurt for lunches this week. I used 2% milk and it came out a little more runny, so I had to strain off the whey to thicken it up. It’s delicious!
And between all that I was able to craft up a ton of items! I got an order for 60 white beaded bracelets! I’m half way there already!
And of course I played some uno with the boy, visited family and even got to see my beautiful little niece smiling so big. Made my ❤️ so happy! And of course this makes me smile as well:
Seriously, whose dog sits like that? Our crazy pup!
This month has flown bye and I can’t wait to update you all on our progress around the homestead! Have a great week!
