Re: What Did You Do Today - Daily Steps 2020!

Tuesday: More seeds sown in the greenhouse. Bottled up some beans, rice, & sugar. Began laying out the year for breeding. Got a small system in place to put kitchen scraps for each type of animal with a list Yay & Nay foods. This is just the first step in transitioning from supplementation to replac...

Re: What Did You Do Today - Daily Steps 2020!

Woohoo! Finally finished the rabbit tractor & nesting boxes! Rabbits seem happy. The buck will be going into his own pen tomorrow, but for now he's enjoying one last night with the girls. Got a bit more wood chips spread in the muddiest parts of the walkways outside the coops & pens, got some compos...

Re: What Did You Do Today - Daily Steps 2020!

Have almost the entire garden plotted - just gotta work out a few placements, then see what extra to add to the "empty" spaces.

Built a rabbit tractor. Got everything but the nesting boxes inside completed.

Saturday, I worked long hours outside spreading wood chips in the turkey, chicken, and duck pens & run. Cleane...

Re: What Did You Do Today - Daily Steps 2020!

There isn't much to list for Monday but it was hours of work outside. After busting all the ice in the animals' waterers & feeding them, I made my way to the feed store to pick up my rabbit pellets and grab a round bale of hay. It is nearly 6 inches to big to roll into the greenhouse (we will try a ...

Re: What Did You Do Today - Daily Steps 2020!

Sunday found us working a bit on fixing the turkey coop roof, starting on rabbit tractors, and spreading wood chips. It was so windy that it was difficult to do much outside of feeding the animals.

Re: DO SOMETHING: even if it’s wrong!

I love this! What I love the most is that you are *doing* it and learning thru trial & error versus trying to make everything "perfect" before giving it a go. I think that's what drives my hubby bonkers in my gardening - I just have at it and constantly try something new - every year is different! H...

Re: ARE YOU PLANTING YOUR SPRING GARDEN?

I've just started the winter greenhouse garden. Slightly late but it's all fast growing greens for the moment. Just finished getting the first layer of hay, dirt, compost finished in my potato bins ... Those start going in Feb 14. Still working on soil health here. The hubs just told me that he's go...
