It's been a while, so what have we been up to lately?
We've planted a few trees. A couple more native trees for the backyard, and a fig tree in the front yard. We've made another garden bed on the north wall of the shed and planted a pear tree in it. None of the trees are much to look at right now though.
What I can show off are pictures of the chook pen! Another coat of mud has been slopped on the inside strawbale wall, a couple of sheets of iron have adorned the west wall, and the north wall has a window, but no walls as yet.
Check these out!
The weather has turned wet and rainy, so construction has halted for now. I'm researching as much information as I can about chooks. Since we're keen on keeping a heritage breed, we've decided on Dorkings. Here are some links with info:
Rare Breeds Trust of Australia - The Silver-Grey Dorking
Dorking Breeders Group of Australia
In the meantime, we're keeping warm with the Bakers Oven in the kitchen.
Until next time!
