Things are finally greening up, and our chicks are rounding out. Here’s some photos taken during a brief moment between rainshowers.
The coop is up! Chicks spent their first night outside in their new pad, seemed to like the change in scenery and extra space.
Also, I want to say Happy Mother’s Day! This goes out to my mama especially, but also warm thoughts and memories for those who’s Mother’s aren’t just a phone call away. Love you!
Moved in to the new pad, back in action! My first weekend project was a workbench in the garage; a few 4v4s with a thick 2×4 reinforced plywood work surface; Peg board on the back.
The first project will be a chicken coop, I’ll be sure to keep photos coming!
This is a long-awaited followup post to this one, chronicling the growth of my diy fungus colony. The oyster mushrooms were slow growing for the first week or so, then suddenly sprang up over a few days. Here they are nearing full bloom. Creepy alien lifeform…yet so tasty.
One of my xmas gifts was a DIY home oyster mushroom growing box, like one from this site:
I already got one crop harvested, but will be trying a time-lapse slideshow of the second batch…coming soon!
It’s Monday, so here’s a grab bag of amusing web finds. (don’t know all sources, mostly reddit, imagur, etc)
Had a lot of stuff going on last week, including a weekend visit from the parents, lots of fun!!
Our garden has really picked up with this string of 90degree days, and the hops are thick and healthy, here’s an introductory video to the hops…planning to pick them this week sometime and do a homebrew.
With the warm weather ramping up, our front garden has really come alive. Perennial stuff abound, especially herbs: chives, pineapple mint, rosemary, lavender, oregano, thyme, lemon balm, and sage.
This second shot below is of our side deck and the hops, which seem to be taking over the thing a couple feet a day.
Also, tomorrow is the Summer Solstice, just lettin’ ya’ll know 🙂
