Since this blog was started in November, I haven’t experienced being busy outside and blogging simultaneously. That will be changing now that the temperatures have risen above freezing every so often.
There’s nothing that can be done in the garden yet; it’s covered in snow. But it’s good weather for working anyway, and today I jumped into converting the outhouse into a chicken coop.
I’m really not very good at carpentry. After decades of home improvement, you’d think it would come naturally now, but it doesn’t. It’s like a foreign language to me, and I don’t think I’ll ever get the accent down.
But I do have the will, and in the end things usually turn out sturdy and good. It’s just not a pretty process.
Here’s today’s progress:
The 3-seater’s covered, nest boxes installed, the poop board frame is up and the roost is ready to go. It’ll be interesting to see how well I’ve judged our needs and the space. There’s still a long way to go.
And yesterday I added to the used coffee grounds collection. Just waiting like I am.
