Finally got to work on building our greenhouse.

We bought the lumber new, but the roof trusses came off a recycled mobile home, the metal was leftover from our garage, and the windows came out of an old school.  I would have used all reused/recycled/upcycled stuff if it were possible.

All in, we are about $400 into this greenhouse.

We are getting an unusual amount of snow here in coastal SC, at least Otis seems to like it!

We have a possible, future fox problem.  This guy dug under the fence, and was in the run a few nights ago.  Thank goodness we lock our chickens in their coop every night.

We built a 6"x6" frame for our swing.


Chickens being introduced to their new moat!

Sunflowers did well this year.

Image
Some of these things were giants!

The biggest sunflower head we've ever grown.

This one was a volunteer sunflower from bird feeder spillage.

We pressure canned a bunch of grape juice.

Image
We love our steam juice, and our pressure canner!

Our chickens love fresh oats!

Our chickens love when we let them loose in an oat patch.

The carrots, and beets are doing well.  We can't wait until harvest time!
