Weekend wrap-up

WOW, I got a lot done this weekend. Sorry for no pictures but I honestly didn’t have the time to stop and get the camera, an unusual thing for me, I assure you. Here’s the breakdown for what got done:


• Turned over and hoed all vegetable garden beds and parts of the front yard beds adding compost where needed.

• Planted 150 onion sets.

• Planted multiple rows of carrots.

• Planted Norland Red and Yukon Gold Potatoes in planter buckets.

• Pulled and transplanted four Italian flat-leaf parley plants from last years garden into the front-yard beds.

• Placed 2 recycled concrete Pavers into garden beds.

• Ripped recycled 2x4’s into 2x2’s for use with the chicken coop.

• Completed rough framing of the coop, and cut the purchased ¼” OSB sheets into size for the hen house.

• And of course never wanting to neglect the family time, we managed to squeeze in a Grizzlies Hockey game on Friday and a trip to the community center on Saturday for some swimming for the boys and a little workout for Mom and Dad. Good Times!


Geez, I got a little tired just writing that list. Needless to say it was a very busy and productive weekend. At least I get to come to work today for 9 hrs and relax a little. LOL. If the weather holds, which is questionable, I’ll try to get some pictures up of the progress for those of you who may be interested. Otherwise, I will definitely have a post tonight about a potential Chick killer that I learned about while raising my first batch of little ones and that has reared its head again. So check in tomorrow morning for that, particularly if you’re thinking of getting some chicks in the near future.

Have a great day all.

HEY THERE! Thanks for stopping by. I checked out your description;

Yup! Sounds like me all right! I am glad you are doing the chicken thing, I will be trying that sometime soon, so hopefully I can learn something from ya!
