I just really wanted to make a thread for people to talk on, LOL. I made it, me, me, ME! What'ca up to with your wifey ways?! I just got done hauling several loads of hay for the garden. First I had to rake it up. I used a rake head without a handle this season, until hubby brought home a proper rake the other day, lol. The square foot vegetable garden is doing really well and everything is organic! I hardly ever water it because of a 6 inch layer of mulch, LOL. I just picked my Black Pearl pepper yesterday. The plants and fruits are just so dark purple. WOW! The chickens and the red wigglers are making great castings! I just made and used 15 gallons of it yesterday! All from a tiny coffee can composter. Coffee Can Composter I can't wait to see what the big composter is making. I keep adding all sorts of food. I am doing the "feed a whole ton of food and let the populations explode" method. Its working wonderfully! Hubby got a call back to work--Lord willing he will be there on the 11th. Pray it all works out! I am in the process of training a new chicken dog. Its a mini schnauzer, basset and heeler cross. My Lord, he is UGLY. So far its working out well. If he doesn't work out, they said they'll take him back. He is just a puppy so we have a long way to go. I have a tiny job I use to pay the phone bill and to make a little extra money. I am trying to save up enough to buy a solar powered electric fence to fence the chickens into a two acre area. Boo officially starts home schooling next year, I am just thrilled! Were using Sing, Spell, Read, Write and I think he'll do well on it. My sister gave me the program so that helped a whole ton! What are ya'll into?
