I have been quite busy around the homestead, hence my sporadic postings! I wanted to share with you what I've been up to.
Next, we've been working on getting the rabbit hutch turned into a chicken coop. We're building an eight foot run off the hutch so the chickens can get some sun and grub. I can't wait till the construction is all wrapped up and we're gathering eggs from our own backyard!
Today I started up my first sourdough. I have a San Francisco starter from Goldrush Sourdough that I decided to get going. I hope to cook lots of great things while going through Wardeh's Sourdough eCourse! It's staying warm in the oven today (oven is off, but the heat of the light provides a constant warmth).
The garden is thriving in the sun with the perfect mix of rain. I fed them some comfrey tea I "brewed" so I hope the burst of organic nutrients yields to a larger harvest! I've already harvested: Swiss chard, onions, strawberries, cucumbers, turnips, eggplant, cherry tomatoes, parsley, snow peas, lettuce, broccoli, and zucchini!
