Garden update 5/19/16

chicken coop, garden

Had some cold weather lately covered them on the bad night but last night it was 40 degrees. that’s a big change from my closet inside that i had at 70 degrees. unfortanatly i may be buying more plants here, i do believe we are through the cold temps though. Ill begin ammending my soil soon here, as you can see its not the best looking stuff.

I love my new walls and the dogs love wrestling on them:)

There’s my little egg makers:) steady 2 eggs a day with the hardest shells. I feed them corn and chicken layer feed mix. Soon I’ll try cracked corn because I’ve noticed they aren’t eating the whole corn. Lil buggers.

Fauna moseyed on down to the grand river the other day for a small dip. She’s alright ❤

Stay tuned baby

Video: Red Wiggler Worms working in a Compost Pile

chicken coop, Compost Pile, garden, Videos

Hey ever since I started “Lenny’s Worm Farm” ive always been interested in the ways worms play a vital role in gardening. When I started this compost pile a year ago I knew it needed red wigglers, a breed of worm known for its ability to eat and munch on all the good scraps and produce worm castings. I bought 200 and released them hoping for a good turnout. and now I can say I think its happening there are tons of worms in my pile. Oh they just love me ❤

please enjoy this brief video:

Thanks

It’s finally time, I brought my plants out from the indoor closet set up I crafted together. and let them into the environment. I wish I had eased them into it because I fear the cold nights my stress them out a little bit. I also wish I had invested in some topsoil + cow manure to fertilize before planting. Anyways it is what it is you live you learn.

Keep it real all.

The seedlings begin! Starting inside to have a great summer garden! 

Diy, Spring 2016

Hey all! I’m starting to get so excited for the garden this year. I’m saving so much money by doing this! Plus my variety is better than anything the local stores carry! I have purple cherry tomatoes, black krin tomatoes, corn that’s multi colored, and many more.    
I’d love to open a fruit stand but don’t wanna have to fight the city. C-S-ers… Oh well I’m going to supply friends and family. Keep the ones you love close, and healthy.

    
 
Stay tuned baby

Thanks y’all

Farm Update: it’s cold and heavy snow 3/1/16

chicken coop, fauna, Winter 2015

Eh yoo we got blasted all today with about 6 inches of heavy wet snow. Cleared a nice path to the chicken coop which has been surprisingly yielding well. My to hens the best. Can’t wait for summer though they really need a new fresh coop:)  

  
 My pup will run and frolic through the snow chasing her bone! She’s too good to me, no back talk non of that! 

   
   
Supposed to be 60 F next week so that sounds pleasant. My birds in the coop loving it! Nice heat lamp and hay to roast they tushes. 

Looking into coop designs where I can enjoy beauty of watching egg laying creatures, but where my pups can’t. If you guys have any ideas let me know, I got two naughty hounds who’d love to feast. 

Enjoy yours
