The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Plastic pitcher delivery

A big truck full of potential chicken waterers

Today was a big day filled with our first bulk plastic pitcher delivery.

We had been getting half gallon plastic pitchers at our local Dollar General store, but that medium volume was stressing their system to the point where some weeks they just couldn't fill the order.

It took a little over an hour to unload all 7 pallets and shuttle them down our driveway to the parking area. A nice bonus was meeting a new neighbor who didn't mind waiting to get by. He told us about his flock of chickens and seemed happy when we gave him a free waterer for being such a nice guy about us blocking the road.
