Working on the Chicken Tractor

We finally got back to do a little work on the chicken Tractor. Got the Door added for access to the whole unit.

A Little painting and wrapping it up with chicken wire, add some nest boxes and some straps to make it easier to move,  we should be good to go…. I kinda wish she would use something better than chicken wire. But that not my call. Oh might need to add a ramp so the chicken can get in the coop.

New Critters…

I had 5 Quail Hatch out. Pick up three more Rabbits. I started a batch of Mead. I have also aquired a pork belly that I’m going to cure into bacon from the farmers market.

We are designing this Chicken Tractor to run 3 to 4 chickens. We are trying to keep the weight down. To keep it easy for one person to move. My woodworking skills are not the greatest thing in the world but they are improving with each project. I don’t think I’ll be good enough to build cabinets anytime soon, though. hehe

Kombucha Bottling Day

It is bottling day…

I made 8 bottles of Cherry Kombucha and 4 bottles of plain Kombucha and had enough to fill a quart ball jar. Which I have already have been sampling.

There are many ways to get fermented food and beverages into your life. Other than the acholic kinda. Every culture thru out history had some sort fermented food in their life on a daily basis. In the last 40 to 50 years the western diet has mostly omitted them. I feel that it is important for maintaining good health to include them in my diet too.

You might consider looking into fermented foods and beverages, to see if you are of the same opinion.

Take care and be safe people
