Putting Down a Floor & Moving Goats in

It's funny how fast and busy those weeks off are, isn't it? Jeremy took a week of vacation time to get some homestead work done because we were getting behind. He's working his regular full-time job, and working at Spring Lake Family Farms a lot to get that business up and running. It's going so well, but the homestead work was getting pushed to the wayside. And we needed to play catch up because we have babies coming!


The Nesting Buckets that Jeremy Built

We've had a few days here and there when the rain has stopped and the mud has dried up. (But don't worry, the mud doesn't get so dry that it turns back into dirt before it starts raining again.) One night during a dry spell, I mentioned (for the 50th time) that we needed to get some kind of nesting boxes set up in the new coop to Jeremy.


A Hay Feeder that Jeremy Built

Jeremy's been building again. This time... I'm not going to say it's ugly, but it is pretty funny looking. He wanted to build a quick hay feeder for the goats since we were getting the billy that week. His agenda was to build something the goats could not knock over. And, well, they can't knock this thing over!


How to Build a Chicken Coop ~ Part 2

I finally pinned Jeremy down, so he could finish explaining how he built our beautiful new chicken coop. For the first part, click here.


How to Build a Chicken Coop ~ Part 1

As I said before, this chicken coop was...interesting to build. Poor Jeremy. He loves me so much.


The Greenhouse that Jeremy Built

Several days ago, I bought Quinn's Homestead Management Binder sheets. (They are lovely, by the way! And it's not an affiliate link!) I particularly wanted the Seed Sowing Schedule. You can customize it, so that the dates are reflective of your last frost date. I put our's in, which is April 8, and it showed...that I'm totally late.

Bummer.

But also, no big surprise for those who know me.


The Clothesline that Jeremy Built

Who would have ever thought writing a post about a clothesline would be so hard! I keep starting it and then starting over again and again. I can't decide how to say exactly what this clothesline means to me.


A Goat Milking Stand that Jeremy Built

When Jeremy clipped the goats' hooves by straddling said goats and bending over said goats' back-end, he decided it was time to build a milking stand.


I'm not really sure why.

Too Poor to Paint!

In doing a bit of research for our next farm project, I found out there is an old saying that goes "Too proud to whitewash, too poor to paint!" Well, we AREN'T too proud to whitewash, and we ARE too poor to paint, so our next project is whitewashing!


Building some Walls

The weather is starting to cool off, and Jeremy had a couple days at home (when he was supposed to be helping deliver the baby, but we all know that's not happening!) so he decided to put up the walls to our goat room on our garage-turned-barn.


The Roof that Jeremy built

Not to brag or anything, but my husband is a pretty good husband. He's pretty good-looking, funny, and a hard worker. He loves me. And he knows that I can't leave all these compliments without also pointing out that he's not perfect. But I love him, and I love having him for a husband.
