It is a beautiful weekend here, lots of sunshine and warm weather. We’ve been busy and the jobs are coming along nicely. Yesterday, we (Leighton mostly) got a great start on the fence. He’s made me a gate and added the street sign he had given me as a gift many years ago (Stuart is my family name), I love it!
I worked the big garden up with the tiller we’ve borrowed from my parents. Still have more to do, after the ground is worked up we will add the wooden sides and move the ground we got last fall into it (Leighton’s Dad brought over an old manure pile for us to add to the garden).
Some of the chicks are out in their ‘playpen’, we love watching them learn to scratch.
I’ve finally gotten our new incubator up to the required temperature, so I’ve put in 21 Orpington eggs. This is the first time we’ve used an incubator, I’m a little nervous. If you have any tips let me know! I had taken a trip to the feed store last week and saw it, the guy at the store gave me a great deal on it and I couldn’t pass it up 🙂
So far it has been a productive weekend. How has yours been?
