    Seeds Planting Sprouts and Kitties of course

    Seeds Planting Sprouts and Kitties We had several very nice days last week. Soo I took advantage of it. Starting off with finding seed heads on last years Zinnias. As you can see there sure are a bunch. However this was only the beginning! I found LOTS! I left them for the birds. The short and mild winter had other plans. Which helped me save some money on Zinnia seeds. I spread them out on paper to dry and also to catch those that fall. this was only the beginning of the fun! I also checked my seed stash.

    Winter prep Chickens and Snoopervising this week

    Winter Prep Chickens and Snoopervising This last week was Winter prep Chickens and Snoopervising of course. The above image is for sure what we are getting ready for, Snow. Knowing that it was coming there were several things that needed to be done. Starting with the chicken coop. Trust me it was a mess. A whole loader full of chicken fertilizer. And fertilizer needs to be spread around. I typically start with the evergreens and go from there. Ending of course in the veggie garden. Then moving on to adding clean sand and pine shavings. Remembering the struggles I had last winter with the pen door that too needed some…
