A diary of the projects, hurdles, rewards and family life at we recorded at Wise Acres, our former homestead in Horsefly, BC. (Careers and teenagers have forced us back into the city, at least for a little while.)

Ah...the great outdoors!

I spent most of yesterday preparing the outdoor pen for the chickens and turkeys.  I had to do a little brush cutting to make a clear path for the electranet fencing, cut out a door from the coop to the pen and make a gangway for the chickens to go down.  Here they are enjoying the great outdoors...well sort of...
They were not exactly running outside... I had to entice them by pulling their feeders through the door and then they reluctantly followed.
The sheep have been enjoying the green grass for a few weeks now...this week-end I am hoping to finish the fencing on the other side of our property so they can head over there and give this space a rest.
This is Shatzi, Vivien's 4-H lamb with one of Curly's twin ewe lambs (the little black one)...
 Here is Faith the goat and the ever-watchful Knut...
The sun is shining so I am off to plant out a few more squash, some cucs in the greenhouse and the rest of the beets and carrots.  The salad greens are really taking off, salads for lunch and dinner today!
