Now that hubby has started back to a 5 day a week schedule, projects around the homestead have been pushed to the weekends. Luckily this weekend is a three day holiday weekend. This next week will be the first really cold week of the winter with lows in 20's. So that means winterizing the coops with home made heat lamps and plastic around the sides. Also the Buffs run is too small so we bought chicken wire to enlarge it. Tomorrow will be loading up on wood for the upcoming cold week to burn in the two wood stoves. We also bought supplies to make to start growing greens and herbs inside the house with grow lights. (As I mentioned before we live in a very wooded area and don't get sunlight in the yard enough to grow a garden). Happy New Year!
