It's coming, it's coming!!

Back of the house.  Chicken coop will be located on the right where the dead tree is in the photo.
Same area as the previous photo, but from the perspective of the back porch.  We have cleared a lot of shrubbery (and have more to clear).  The shrubs, trees and brush used to extend as far as the water spigot in the right of the photo.  The dead tree is sitting in the location of our future chicken house!
Here is my new BEAUTIFUL 3-bin compost!
Each front slat is removable making it extremely easy to load, unload and turn.
With the Vernal Equinox just 2 weeks away, I am letting myself really get into the Spring planning!  The garden plans have been coming along quite nicely for some time, the chicks have been ordered (and are scheduled to ship on April 11th) but I have been sitting on this Spring-cleaning, life-organization bug for a week or so now and I am ready!

I have gone through my Rollogas Family Home Operator's Procedures Manual and revamped!  I have updated my Morning, Naptime and Before Bed Routines, as well as my Daily Tasks.  If you are interested, you can also look at the "old" version of them (made while living at Davis Ave and pre-Theo) by checking out my posts from June 2009, entitled Adventures in Homemaking Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.  I have also been working on some new pages for my Procedures Manual.  The new pages will be Monthly, Semi-annual, and Annual tasks, so stay tuned!

What are you itching to do this Spring?

As per my usual, I will leave you with some garden photos.  :)


Pea shoots.

A row of spinach seedlings.

  1. The compost bin turned out great! Is there a reason that you opted not use the hinged top? I'm guessing the top design was for increasing the heat? Rennie was also wondering how you came out of the project cost-wise for your materials.
