On Sunday we made plans for our Spring garden. We moved into the yurt too late in the season this year to have a proper garden, but this spring, having lived and loved our land, prepared the soil, and planted on time, we expect great things.
Saturday, my husband learned that 6 laying hens are ours for the taking, as soon as we build them a little home. When the weather clears a bit, we'll have that up and the hens pecking around in the dirt - our first productive animals, as the puppy is decidely unhelpful.
Before winter we'll hopefully get a small "kitchen building up for the woodstove and oven we have coming. I can't wait to bake proper bread again, and give up the propane single burner for the most part. It's all begining to feel like a "real" homestead, when the goats and pig come in the spring and the produce starts pouring in, then I'll really feel it.
