Howdy friends!

I came out of retirement and went back to the Internet place where I worked before, yay!

Work for profit for the week is done. Now I can get back to working or around the house projects, except with money!
I'll only post a few of the images of non-AP projects. This project is being done for some chickens we're raising this year.

I've been doing a lot of carpentry for the integration of the Brooder van and karaoke box trailer into the chicken pen. At first it seemed straight forward to build a cage of chicken wire to meet up with the van. I soon realized every curve of the van needed an engineered piece of wood to fit it in and not being able to attach the wood to the van meant each piece needed to be self-supporting.

Integrating the Brooder Van and Karaoke box trailer into the chicken pen. A whole lotta round to square carpentry. Lots of voids to cover under the van and the trailer. I hope this part is done and I'll move onto the door on the other side of the trailer today. It took all day to figure it all out, but I got it and I'm satisfied it will keep the birds in and foxes out. Unfortunately the whole top is yet to be covered and it is also round! I want to say from now on I'm only going to build square structures, but the reality is Nell and I were both sick when we built the chicken pen and it is what it is and we're glad we did what we did. I have a plan for how to cover the top. I still need to simplify the plan so it takes like one day to do, haha, right?

Taking big pieces of wood and making small pieces. Thank goodness for this miter cut off saw. Not next, but after the door where I'm standing will be the top of the pen. My plan is to layout three lengths of chicken wire in the field and weave the sides together, then drape the combined sections over the sides. This is so we don't have to work up from the bottom as much.

We're also working in the four next to trees gardens we have been building around the house.

Second season peppers are outside again after continuing to fruit all Winter in the greenhouse. I never would have guessed they'd go a second year, so that cool.

This morning I used the last of the compost from the rotting hay we got to help warm the outdoor Koi pond three years ago.

The media beds need cleaning after raising 100 Brook trout overloaded the system with fish poop.

Great recycling project for your chickens

Works a pain at times but money in the pocket always helps

Ive been recovering from injury and I think ive found a job I can do that will get me going again , starting next week

Got some projects that ive had on hold for awhile now due to lack of spare funds.

Thanks for the note Terra. Yes not working doesn't help make us feel better went we're down for the count. It's funny, now that I am working again I want to buy stuff whereas when I was down I wouldn't even look at Amazon. First thing I did last week was buy more parts for the lifted Jeep :D

Hopefully it'll stay clean for a while with only the four four year old trout in the 2600 gallon tank.
