So we knew there would be challenges
I mean moving a family of six, of course there will be road bumps right……
Well there was challenges, some small tasks were bigger than we thought, like the chicken coop. Sometimes nature has a different plan than I do, like wild animals get hungry.
So here is what happened in 60 days on the Farm…
We planned on moving in one weeks time…
It took us one month, to be completely moved!
We lost 5 ducks to hungry coyotes (however they left a foot that our dogs found, which we believe gave them the taste for “fresh meat”)
We then lost a new rooster Elvis , given to us by friends, to our Dogs!
We then lost 2 more hens (Big Red, and Little red riding hood) to them same chicken killing Dogs
We got 10 chicks 1 died (silent tears Tiny Tim ) so 9 left
Finished a way upgraded outside chicken run
And we continue to struggle on the aquaponics (the system is still set up in a heated shop the new and much larger greenhouse is still in the planning phase)
and last but not least we have managed to take some great pictures around the homestead
Nothing went quite as planned. However some times in life you just have to wing it, and roll with the punches! Life is exciting around here right now, constant changes and learning every step of the way♡♡♡
