Chicken Tractor

It seems like every time I go to the grocery store the price of all natural chicken would go up and the quality would go down. Last week when I purchased the chicken it was the last straw I went home and told my husband that we need to start raising meat birds. We currently do have layers birds but not meat birds so this will be a new adventure.

Planting Our Garden

I was so excited that we got to plant our garden this week. It feels so great when you stand back and look at what you have planted and get a feeling of accomplishment. Also knowing what you just planted will being you many rewards later.

First Ever Made From Scratch Pie

I just baked from first every made from scratch pie. I have to admit I was always intimidated about making the crust so I always bought the ones in the refrigerator section. This weekend I decided I would take on the challenge and make it myself.

Eggs, Eggs and More Eggs

Since spring has really kicked in we have been getting between 5-6 eggs a day. Well now we have been getting between 8-9 a day and the other day we got a dozen in one day!! We now have 6 dozen eggs in the fridge and that's after I gave my mom and the feed mill owner 2 dozen each. This week we are going to start eating more egg incorporated dishes.

Tilling Up the Garden

I'm delighted to say that we tilled up our new garden this past weekend. We had to move our location of the garden because we got blight two years in a row. The blight affected our tomatoes big time two years in a row. Some of the tomatoes would only half ripen, they would split open before they were ripe or they would fall of the ripe before they would ripen and never ripen after that.

Chicken Run Fence Pt 2

I'm so happy to say that we have finally finished our new larger chicken run!!! The ground was finally thawed 3 feet down this past weekend so we were able to sink the posts.The chickens love it since there's not only a sunny part but also a large shaded part since it partially in the woods. We decided to leave in the large tree limbs since they love to climb on the them.

Being Frugal with Health and Beauty Products

I do want to move towards more natural health and beauty prodcuts but I have much back stock to go thtough. Like I've mentioned before I'm a stockpiler (not sure if that's a word) however even though I may get it cheap I still use the items sparingly. For example I mark my disposaible contact box, contact solution, expensive shampoo with the date that I opened it. That way I can try to make those items last as along as they can.
