Raising the Roof

Farm News

I saw on another blog that at the end she always wrote “Farm News” with a few short updates! I loved it so much that I wanted to incorporate that at the bottom of mine!

1 handful of blueberries, 1 ripe banana, 1 glass of ice, 1T honey, 4 raspberries, 4 strawberries, 1 serving Yoplait blueberry yogurt, 1 scoop Mango Madness BCAA’s, and 1 scoop Banana flavored Protein Powder.

1. The horses ran through the fence today so the chicken run and the garden’s deer fencing wasn’t, ironically, the only fencing we did today.
2. The horses got the weekend off – using the time to let them relax in the pastures. That’ll change come Monday!
3. The hens were so happy with their new pen that they laid a record number FIVE eggs for the six of them! I think that was the biggest compliment of all to my dad for his hard work!
4. The Rhode Island Reds are SAVAGE and won’t let up on my poor Astrolops. I’m not sure what to do to stop them from harassing them!
5. I enjoyed lunch breaks with homemade sourdough grilled cheese sandwiches, DELICIOUS mango electrolyte and banana protein powder smoothies, and a chance to read a little more in my most recent history book.

  1. Chicken wire is the WORST!!! Especially when you get to the center of the roll, lol! I’d love to learn some tips on how to install it and have it look decent and not all warped (which is how ours always turns out!).

    Could you install a cattle gate that has wire on it? There are some large enough to get a tractor through when open.

    1. I totally concur on chicken wire! If I had all the time and resources in the world, I think I would have cut and stapled it to wood frames and then put each panel up! But, alas, I did not have the time as I wanted to get my ladies out into a bigger pen! Ours is sadly warped and I’m worried about the fall when the leaves fall on top of it – I don’t want it to sag down through the middle!

      I think that’s an awesome idea with the cattle gate! I had actually suggested it but I guess my dad had wanted to swing the whole end of the fence open so he could run a tractor through each run on the garden. He’ll think on it and come up with something I guess!
