This past weekend was dry and warm, though a bit windy.
Donald did some work around the yard, trimming trees and clearing a walkway around the hen house so that it would be easier to gather eggs. He also started building stands for the chicken waterer and feeders to keep them off the ground.
Plans are to move the chicks to their new home this coming weekend. They will be 6-weeks old and should be ready to be outside (we hope).
Our next priorities include:
- Moving rock to the base around the turkey run;
- Tilling plot 3A for peppers and re-tilling plot 2C for tomatoes;
- Reviewing our current seed inventory to determine what can still be planted and what should wait until either fall or spring 2014 planting.
Other than that, it was a slow day on the farm.
