I recently got some chickens, I built the coop myself with salvaged wood, an idea of what it was supposed to look like, and determination. It turned out really good, the lady I bought my chickens from was surprised to find out that I just kind of made it up as I went. I have several projects that I would like to do, maybe not in the immediate future, but before this time next year. 1. Dig a root cellar. I very much need one 2. Build a small milking shed. I have lots of wood, and will be getting two recently bred does at the end of this month, fresh goatmilk come April/Mary, but I'll need someplace to milk them, and their "house" is a little short unless I want to sit on the floor. 3. drying racks. For herbs, cut grasses, whole plants, and I was thinking on trying to dry food this year. I don't have a dehydrator, and I've never had luck with them anyway. and in-case anyone has any tips that would help. I am always willing to try new things. I would love to learn how to make baskets from natural materials for example. I know I can't really sell them, but they'll save me a lot of money on containers that don't need to be watertight. I'm a passable knitter, can't crochet to save my life, love to sew, great cook. pretty much anything you think I might find helpful. thanks in advance.
