What do you think of farm chores? Sometimes I wonder about those that live in a subdivision with a tiny yard, never wanting to step foot in a farm, what do they do all day? Most probably have the cleanest house – worth of being in the pages of Southern Living magazine with everything orderly, in perfect shape with pillows that have that puffed up look then a crease in the top, staged ever so perfectly on the sofa. HA!
You won’t find that here. 🙂 Yes my house is clean, somewhat neat, sometimes cluttered but it only takes a bit of effort to make it “company” ready. I would rather go outside and clean stalls, move hay, plant, weed, hike – A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G but clean and primp for a picture perfect house.
It was freezing the day I took these pictures but I laugh now thinking back to the picture that went around facebook below – that is what I felt like and needed to get outside!
I did go out in the garden to play with the beds adding food scraps, compost, layers etc…
First I dug a hole in one of the raised beds with my small hoe/rake thingy(LOVE this tool!), then I dumped in the kitchen scraps.
Covered it up with dirt and added a layer of straw –
Covered that layer with compost – here is a pic of the compost pile but I forgot to take one when I covered the bed. 😀
My hens do the turning for me –
Then a layer of leaves –
Look what I found growing?!
On to take the tarp off the hay and move it around cause it got wet a bit from the ice – boo. 😦
Finally Tina does what she does best – EAT!
Love my horse 🙂
By this time my hands were frozen so done for the day! Hope you have a beautiful day today in whatever you do!
