    No worries 🙂 I’m not really doing anything right now anyway. Too hot. Haven’t done a single thing on my list lol Did do baby shopping yesterday though 😁 And Consort hatched out all her eggs but two. 8 chicks and 3 poults. Not bad for a first timer! I’m proud of her 🥰

    Got some grocery shopping done yesterday and a little bit today when we went to drop off some chicks. Finally have all the topsoil I need to plant my raised bed. Took a few trips with the wheelbarrow to get all 40 20-litre bags out back. All but 6 have been opened and dumped into the raised bed...

    2020, Waiting on Lambs!

    No permits, less money, and more space at the end of the day - I’d go for that option 👍 Unless you really need doors?

    Yes, but if he cleaned up he could find or create places :tongue Lol My geese have gone to their new home. I miss them already :( Fortunately, I feel they will be very well taken care of as the woman who got them seemed genuinely excited to have them and was very nice. I have a few chicks and...

    What about getting a crossbow or something along those lines? I think you can get small handgun sized ones from Amazon in the states. Just a thought 🙂

    His reason (excuse 😉) for not doing it is that he has no place to put things...I’m hoping imminent baby will light a fire under him and perhaps he’ll make space for keeper things and toss or donate everything else 😋 We’ve made some progress the last two days, so :fl it continues!

    So good to have warm weather finally! Plants have moved outside and I’ve got my herbs and some leafy greens planted. Hoping to do some more tomorrow - Saturday at the latest. DH has to get the lawn mowed as well, so I spent much of today picking up all the sticks, branches, and twigs that have...

    It took me a while to get back into the swing of things when the format changed too and it felt kinda overwhelming. I just posted on my own journal until I was comfortable enough to start getting back into reading and catching up. Maybe try that and see how you feel? And x2 on what @B&B Happy...

    I do grow oregano in my front garden. I typically dry it for the winter and offer it and cayenne pepper (sometimes garlic too) to my birds for prevention purposes along with the ACV they pretty much always get in their water. I honestly don’t know if I’m just lucky enough to have really hardy...

    Welcome and thanks! :frow Glad you enjoyed reading my journal! I’m kind of a feast or famine poster, so it’s fairly short but covers several years lol I haven’t planted my salad bar yet this year. Last year I mostly planted grass and wheat grass. I also tried planting some various leafy greens...

    Right? :lol: The only reason we never expanded the goats is because DH didn’t like them and I was happy with just my trio 😝 He’s definitely got to take some math classes to help with his new sheep addiction 😉😂 I might go for my poultry addiction...or we’ll both happily continue taking turns...

    @Baymule I have 3 smaller ones. I can usually hatch about 20 eggs a week (depending on fertility and quitters) since my 2 with auto turners hold about 40 each and my 3rd is used just for lockdown. I set and hatch weekly that way and only need to clean out the one for the entire hatching season...

    Consort moved with what was left of her eggs. She’s got 7 and two of them might be goners, but I’ll leave them for now. They’re due next weekend. If none hatch, I have eggs in the bator I might give her instead. I’m not sure if Nutmeg is going broody or if I just caught her getting ready to lay...

    Happy Mother’s Day! (Belated) Had a nice dinner with DH’s mom, then bought an ice cream cake to have for dessert with my mom. I can’t believe how close I am to becoming a mom, myself. I’m so nervous and excited about it! So, I ended up losing a poult the other day, but not for the reason I was...
