Well we’re settled back into our house and its lovely. I’ve been doing laundry and then I got inspired to spring clean so now I’ve started the job of going through our 2 closets we have. I know you may think this odd after only 6 months of marriage but we have accumulated actually. Also I have tons of sweaters etc that I’m done with so away they go.
So I have started making lists again which is one of my favorite things to do. Its very rewarding to cross little things off and deceive myself that I am almost done with all my work.
Yesterday M couldn’t work cuz it was off and on rain so at one of the off times we planted our garden. Which was so fun and I have no idea what I’m doing. I feel like California growing is much different than Michigan. I planted potatoes, green&red peppers, jalapenos, onion, cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatoes. We didn’t do a big garden really, just a good first year starter patch. We got our plants at Lowes because they had good options.
Then we worked on the chicken coop. Our little shed has a fenced area off the side already so we are going to put chickens there. The shed has 2 doors and one goes into this fenced area so I’m hoping to let the chickens into the shed overnight. We will put nesting boxes inside and put chicken wire up to fence off a little section in the shed so it should work pretty well. Mom in law is going to raise chickens as well so she is starting our chicks for us since they have a heater and all that already. I also know nothing about chickens. I remember fighting to gather eggs and getting pecked by Mark&Rhodas chickens when we kids were young so not good memories. I think we’ll get 5 or 6 and Morgan’s family usually get the Rhode Island Red and Barred Rock chickens so does anyone have ideas and advice on the whole raising chickens thing?
Today is another rain day so I’m going to get stuff done inside. We are having company tonight…I’m making this yum soup I like to call Hauder Chowder but that’s as far as I’ve got. Have a wonderful day❤☔
