Welcome to the second post of my homesteading series!
This week’s homesteading recap, may be a little short. The kids were on spring break, the weathers been crappy(lots of rain), and we haven’t accomplished much on the homestead.
Between the weather, and spring break only a little bit of yard/garden work was completed. Thankfully, the weather is supposed to start improving tomorrow. The past week we received so much rain, and our property can get very muddy, so we’ll need to continue fixing that this summer. We have lots to clean and catch up on. Come on nicer weather!
Like I said last week everything is slowly waking up for spring, after this week of heavy rain fall and the sun around the corner I’m betting next week the garden will look completely different. Our plum trees are in full bloom in the food forest.
In between rain breaks, I was able to do a little bit with my plants. Got cold hardy plants in their spots, planted some flowers around, and moved the tomatoes into bigger pots to live in for a few more weeks.
Adding To Our Homestead
One of the highlights of our week was definitely this. We added six cute little chicks to our family. 2 golden comets, 2 americanas, 1 lavender orpington, and 1 olive egger. They are all sweeties! Each year I’m hoping to add a few chicks to our flock, I love getting a variety of egg colors.
Last week was the kids spring break, and a lot of it was spent indoors(rain). We did however occasionally get to jump on the trampoline, and be outdoors. We went to the zoo in Tacoma on one rainy day, and listened to the wolves howling. Celebrated my 15 year old’s birthday, and Easter.
See you all next week…
