“You can’t sit with us” 🐓.
The chicken swing is easily our flock’s favorite feature of the coop. When we first expanded the chicken run, we wanted to provide the chickens with something to jump up on when they are cooped up. Our original chicken swing was made out of a half of a wooden pallet that we attached to the cross beams of the run with eye hooks and cables. The chickens used the swing so much that two of the boards snapped 😳#fatties, so we constructed a new swing out of more durable scrap wood that we had left over from random projects. Super easy, and the chickens love it!

Feliz Domingo!! Para mantenerte saludable tienes que incluir en tus comidas, alimentos frescos y naturales. Me encanta visitar los diferentes mercadillos orgánicos que colocan en diferentes puntos de la ciudad, esta iniciativa está tomando mucha fuerza en los EEUU y Europa asi como en otros países como Costa Rica, México y Colombia, donde se está gestando el cultivo orgánico sustentable. Una de las grandes ventajas de esto es que además de comprar productos recién cultivados, no contienen pesticidas ni productos tóxicos para nuestra salud, y por lo general, tienen muy buenos precios comparados con los de un supermercado de este estilo. #wayoflife#wayofliving#organic#organicvegetables#farmproducts#farmproject#healthyliving#lifestyle#momlife#latinainfluencer
#hercsloafingshed has all the wall parts ready! In this video we cut the angle on side walls to make the panels sit flush with the roofline. .
Consider this a little construction ASMR if you will 😂 Besides all the noise, I also go over our thought process that lead to the way we executed this small part of the project.
A fully walled shed coming soon!
Well, my lettuce didn't make it through the low temperatures this week. (The low got down to 10 I think.) I bought some frost cloth and made myself a little caterpillar tunnel this year to keep lettuce fresh into the winter, but it got a little too cold too quick. I figured this would happen, but didn't know how to prevent it. The tunnel has definitely keep the lettuce fresh several weeks longer than without it, so I've been pleased with the results. Fortunately only 2 full size heads were lost. Unfortunately, I have 30 more heads that I didn't plant in time to reach maturity by now. Today marks the first day of the Persephone Period, the period where there is less than ten hours of light a day. When there is less than 10 hours of light a day, plants don't grow. For whatever reason, my little heads weren't effected by the low temperatures like the full size heads were, so I'll eat them over the next week or two, and call it a wrap for 2019.
This is my first year doing any sort of winter gardening, so these are valuable lesson learned which will come in handy next year as I try to increase my production.
Vegetables like spinach and kale are much more cold tolerant than lettuce, so I think in the next month or so I'll research when I can start planting those!

Standing there with this tiny clary sage baby 🌱 in my palm, I was suddenly filled with a deep reverence for the land I was on and the purpose I was fulfilling. -
Surrounded by snow-capped mountains, it was evident that my part was scant, yet there was an importance in it I just couldn’t place. -
I could feel it swelling as I picked my way carefully across the field. I felt it in my soul and running down my face in hot tears. -
Embarrassed, I turned away from my group and gave myself a moment to sort through this betrayal of emotion and decide why I was feeling so deep for something that seemed so small. -
All I could think was one. One person started One company, with One plant, and One mission to create a better way. -
So with this One baby clary sage, I got to be part of something so much bigger than I could ever imagine.
