What are my plans for The Fruity Chicken this week? Your guess is as good as mine. At my day job our membership ratified the 3 agreements that we have been working on for the past 3 months and that has left me just blehhhhhh. I was looking at my orchard today and found myself just kinda blanking out, I’ve lost 3 plums that just kinda burned up. So maybe I should try to erect some kind of shade structure? but is that just going to be a short term crutch for a tree that may not thrive anyway. I’ll get some pictures and post them this weekend and maybe someone will have some advice. I did chase a bunch of the teenagers out of the juvenile pen so that they can start mixing with the big girls. Again I’ll get some pictures and maybe someone can help me identify what breed these hens are. Saturday is mulch day, my henhouse needs a refill and my compost bins need to be set up. My wife Karen got a line on a dozen Barnevelder and a dozen Basque hatching eggs, I can only assume that means I have yet to reach critical mass on chicken density. That reminds me I need to get an accurate count so we have a baseline for our “when will Karen snap” contest. Wow I’m feeling a bit better already now that I have some projects lined out for this weekend. Life truly is about work, but work isn’t always something your required to do. In a healthy life it is all about working towards goals or working to maintain achievements.
