Private pasture

the new chicks exploring past the trailer for first time

Today was the day our new chicks decided to explore what's on the other side of the trailer.

Soon they'll be big enough to scratch up mulch, but before that we'll move them to their own private pasture.

This isnt exactly on topic for this post, sorry. I just read your root cellar book, and found it interesting and highly informative. I had planned to dig a small root cellar here, but since we are planning a move back east, i think I'll wait. Beyond several plans for creating winter storage, the charts for optimal storage conditions for each crop, plus growing and harvesting info were a very handy bit of info to have all in one place. I often wish I could print out a page or two of these e-books to save as a hard copy refernce in my gardening folder. We are combining an upcoming family visit back east with a chance to view a couple of possible properties. One place. we are going to see was built in 1763 (!) and has a root cellar listed on the specs. I am very interested to check that out!

Deb --- Thanks for reading! If you email me, I'll send you a pdf copy to make it easier to print out parts you want. (I wish Amazon didn't make that so difficult. :-/ ) Good luck with your land-search adventure!

Your chicks are so cute! I'm curious - how do you feed them?

Bubs --- At this age, we have free-choice chick feed available all the time, in the feeder you can see at the top of this post.
