With 5 of 6 Leghorn Hens in production I've started my search for viable ways to feed the girls something to boost their health. I've decided my best course of action will increase access to calcium using a makeshift temporary reclaimed solar oven made out of the temperature hardened glass of a refrigerator shelf. I will cook the egg shells for a couple of hours and then grind the shells for grit supplemental feed!

Sunchokes (Jerusalem Artichoke) are a high calorie food crop which yields extremely well in hot or cold climates. Plant in Autumn, from roots harvested that year or in the Spring from fresh dug roots. Store in soil over winter & disturb only for harvests.

Designed Systems High Carbon Wood Chips Naturally via Fungi Mycelium networks which break down tree lignin over 5-15 years & native soils to produce a perfect Food Forest Growing Mix. Forest grow on top of dead trees, after all!

Eat like a gardener? Misfits Market is a family favorite for food mailed in-a-box. The company seems ethical & appears to avoid plastics. On this day we do an unboxing & refilled with our own Food Forest goodies!

Procedure for planting heat lovers into the garden, like peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, & more!

You have the your property.

This hack was used to repair my watering can better than new.

Using the green plastic lid of an orange juice screw on bottle top inset perfectly into the cup of the broken spout.

Then just a matter of drilling holes in the lid and using an exterior deck screw to fix everything together.

Works better than new!

I've attached a picture here:

So happy right now, moved the juvenile chickens into their forever home! join me on this epic journey, it's a long video but I feel like it's worth watching all the way through in one sitting. Video shot over the course of the last 3 months.

Messing with CAD software, been a long while since my last try drafting and so rather than worry about accuracy in model proportions abstract things like the difference between a 2x4 or a 4x4. As such had this work been turned into my hand drawn drafting teacher inbox, he would have failed it. He was very strict.

Needless to say the act of building this model got the process going for me, it's a rough draft designed on a free phone app, saved as a dwg file. Not so bad! Building a chicken coop.

Most #Plants Depend On A #Fungi-#Bacteria Relationship We've Been Overlooking

Agricultural scientists may have overlooked a #symbiotic relationship essential to the success of #food production. Its discovery may bring potential to supercharge it to enhance #crop growth, replacing artificial #fertilizers that come with a host of undesirable consequences.

I asked somebody in Colorado what AG Zone they were in, they didn't know so I did a search, I guess I don't know either, I think the best answer is, it depends...
