Long time, No See…..

I’ve been away from the blog for a long time. Guess I just got discouraged with it. So much easier to post pictures on Face Book and since I stopped the comment section I’ve had no feed back if anyone is even reading it. I stopped the comments as I was getting way too many spams on it.

That’s my whining reason why it’s been a long time.

So, what’s been going on here? ….

New chicken coop! Finally was able to buy our Amish made chicken coop. Hauled it home from Oklahoma and then had to house the baby turkeys in it for several weeks before it became the chickens’ home. It was the only 99.9% snake proof area we had for the baby turkeys but as soon as they’d grown past snake eating stage we put them in the east coop and the chickens went home.

MovingCoopIt’s on skids so we can move it around with the riding tractor.

OutsideNestBoxDoorIt also has an outside door to the nest boxes! Yeah!

Can you tell I’m excited about our new coop?!

Since the last post we had the K classes from Whitewright ISD come out for a field trip – what a great time!!

KArrivalJune2014Oh, trying to remember back to the day’s events ….. goat milking demo. petting the pet chicken, feeding the worms in the Worm Factory, pasture walk. Garden tours included a fairy garden, 2 pollinator gardens, a patio container garden, and the main raised bed gardens where the kids harvested the various crops growing at that time.

And one of my favorite times, the sing-a-long with John and the dulcimer!

And, of course, the sad “good-bye.”

About Debbie

I'm a 53 yo homesteader/homemaker who is obsessively in love with my God, my husband and my life. I don't know anything about blogging and resisted it for years now. I am good at rambling, which is probably the old fashioned way to say blogging anyway so I'll struggle on and see where this goes. My husband, John, and I live on a 55 acre homestead in NE Texas where we raise Dwarf Nigerian Milk Goats, laying hens, guinea, cats and 3 dogs. We try to live as self-sufficiently as possible, raising organic veggies and meat chickens and using our goats milk for drinking, cooking, cheese/butter making and soap making. John works off the homestead but does a lot on the weekends. We basically live the way our grandparents or great grandparents lived. We believe living debt-free like our grandparents did is the biggest step in being self-sufficient or shall I say, God-sufficient. Life here is always an adventure and seldom boring .... to us anyway! If you have time, come watch the grass grow with me on the porch swing. Debbie
