Greenhouse and Chickens
by Callie on Tuesday, March 16, 2010
The warm sunshine has dried out the top layer of straw, mud, and pine branches in the chicken pen!
I was getting really tired of finding muddy eggs. These chickens came back in the pen to eat up the scratch.
Today I hauled lumber for the planter box I'm going to build in the greenhouse and stacked it by the shed so it will all be in one place when I start cutting it to size.
I cleaned all the junk out of the little greenhouse that my brother built. I took out the pavers where the planter box will sit. I'll use the pavers to make a path to the greenhouse.
I was going to try and build two planter boxes, but decided to just built one in the middle positioned so I can walk along the sides.
I think I may use the miter saw instead of the saber saw to cut the lumber. I'll see how strong I feel tomorrow. That miter saw is heavy.
My brother found a rattlesnake in the greenhouse once so I find myself looking around the space carefully. Between Morgan and the chickens I think the rattlesnakes don't find themselves welcome on the property.
The sprouts still haven't sprouted. Well, some of the lentils have split, so maybe they are going to sprout?

I am still eating mostly fresh food.
