Learning the homestead life in a digital world.

One of the things we have learned with #homesteadlife is that busy mornings make #chores and animals the priority. Things like the toddler's sock choice you just roll with.

One degree, snowing - #chickens, #ducks , and morning #chores still need to get done!

It was brisk and you appreciate the #morning #coffee so much more after returning to the warm house.

After a #snow, doing #homestead chores isn't hardest the day-of. It's a day or two later, when it's cold and the melt/re-freeze has happened. At #sunrise, it's still cold but now it's icy instead of powder. Thankful for good coats, great kids, and this life!

-10 degrees outside?  Who cares when you have a #kitten, a blanket, and a good ebook?

With a few windy days in the last few weeks we used bales of straw together with a palette roof to create a #chicken fortress!  Well ... ok it's a hasty shelter but it's more fun to call it a fortress.

These structures help protect the chickens from the north and west winds at relatively low cost.  Each one uses about $50 in materials.

The less glorious but amazingly useful applications of a tractor: post-#Christmas trash hauler when your #homestead dumpster is about 300 feet from the house.

This #duck was not very happy to be held this morning. Unfortunately we learned that the socializing we did, apparently we needed more.  As a result they are more of the "leave us alone, thank you very much" variety.
