It takes months to get a ripe bell pepper and with my limited space indoors and a greenhouse still only in the planning stage, I wanted to do something more productive.
As the chickens are turning in for the evening, watch the “pecking order” in action and see how each new chicken changes the dynamic. After claiming their places, the hens and their rooster calm down for a good self-grooming (preening) while tucking themselves in for the night.
If you have a home office that is used exclusively for business but have not taken your deduction because it was too complicated to track and calculate, try using the “safe harbor method”.
Something seemed off and I suddenly realized I could hear a baby chick peeping! I reached under her and found one tiny little yellow fluff ball with legs.
Indoor container gardening tip: Cherry Tomatoes (and peppers) will produce much more fruit if you flick the blossoms to imitate the stimulation a bee would give them outdoors.
The local feed store was having a livestock swap on Saturday so I drove down with my son to see what they had. As soon as we pulled up in front of the store, there he was, a Buff Orpington rooster. I couldn’t believe my luck!
My husband and I carefully researched the breeds and decided upon Buff Orpingtons. They are known for their calm, kid-friendly temperament.
