Spring means getting busy!

Saturday, March 22, 2008

Here's the first official post on this blog: Citified is starting to seep out of me and country is beginning to take over. We've been on this place 2 years now and this is the first year we've really done anything "country" with it. We spent the first two years updating the inside and putting down some landscaping in the front and back - of which is still not finished. I'm already learning my lessons though...

Lesson One: Spring means getting down to work. My father-in-law is here to help us get the chicken house and run up. Framing is almost done. We'll put down a mesh floor to let droppings pass through and then skin it. Then comes the fun part (for me). Painting. My number one request was that it not look "tacky". You know what I mean. I didn't want it to look old and dilapidated. I wanted a cute chicken house... all citified. Ha! Well, at least "the ladies" will appreciate it. We'll also be getting the manure ready to spread and work in to the garden area. Boy, that's a real challenge in itself. I'll go into it more later...
