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

chicken coop, Diy, Spring 2016

This spring things running like rampit my raspberrys are flourishing. My chickens been laying, and the seeds are beginning to boom safely indoors. Until May 18th that’s the last day to be worried about a frost in Grand Rapids, MI.    
Look at them raspberrys!

    
    
   
And my red delicious and golden delicious apple trees are budding. Birds is out and the sun is shinning, There hot dog laying in the dirt!

Please enjoy

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

Starting my summer garden plants inside!

Spring 2016

I spent to much last year on pre sprouted plants. This year I bought seeds all via Amazon! I sprouted in roots organics potting soil in these lil itty bitty sprouting trays I also got on amazon!


It’s only a month early so hopefully I’m not doing it too late…


Hope you can read the names! I have a lot of variety and am surely getting more!


My spooky pumpkins will be fun. I’m interested in trying to grow the largest pumpkins, And hopefully one day this blog will lay host to that. These spooky pumpkins are super unique!!

Thanks all! Please enjoy my short worded picture filled blog.

Spring has sprung! Buds are out! Birds are back! Happy Easter!

Farm update: Spring is here! Eggs and 65F 

chicken coop, Compost Pile, Spring 2016

Hey y’all take a look at the farm! We’ve had goergous weather it was 65 all day today! Ever since the Groundhog Day, I’ve been getting eggs!

   
    
 

Put a quick toss on my compost pile and wafted up some odors. Something best kept down. But the corn husk make it tougher to turn and I threw in the towel. Need more composting!
So pretty nice!

Taker easy!
