Tilly's Tiny Family Farm

October 20, 2015 Major Projects and Little To Dos

All together we butchered 117 of our chickens with about 60 to 80 hens and 4 daddy birds left for our laying flock. I haven't had a chance to count them yet. With the delay we had building the chicken plucker, the meat on the chickens is a little tougher than I'd like for sale birds. So friends, family, and us will be eating a lot of chicken this winter.

We also banked 1/2 the edges of the house with dirt, since the bricks were exposed. Have the other half to do once we do some more yard work. Hubbie has been cleaning up the yard and bagging any garbage that has blown into our property. He got a lot done today.

Addition to chicken coop will be starting soon, counter build in my kitchen is also on the list, and changing fluids in the snowplow to get it ready for winter as well.

Posts in the garden and its fencing has all been taken down and stored or piled together. All that is left to harvest and can is red potatoes. They were real small this year so we're canning them all to make sure nothing goes to waste.

Experimenting with gluten free gingersnap recipes. I have a coconut gingersnap that is zingy. It took a lot of work to get it where its at, but its still not a regular gingersnap.

Anyhoo, gonna go watch a movie and relax. Night peeps, toodles!
