    into the Outback Omelet express!

    Our first project is building the nesting boxes. I should make a project list but I'm winging it.
    Well enough for today. Better start earlier tomorrow!

    Tommow turned into about a week.

    Anyway there was no power to the coop. I finally figured it out though.
    There was a short in the underground wiring. It took me a half a day to straighten it out but finally, power!
    The Lattice will support my beans and cukes.

    I guess I can turn this into a log. It rained really hard last night and flooded the back yard. That cuts down the options of what I can do. I have priorties;
    1 Work on the fence for the yard
    2 Cut grass
    3 plant the garden
    4 Work on the coop.
    But today I'm going to work on the coop. I'm going to build the roosting area and maybe cut out the door. Whatever I do it's going to be fun!

    Wanted to work but it's to wet and cold. I went out to start on the roost. I want to build a poop board that I can load with shredded leaves then empty by pulling thru the wall to the compost pile. it is just to cold outside today.
