Organic Panic!

We measured the area for the dog run today.  Crockett will end up with less space than we intended, but he'll be in a good spot with plenty of shade from the summer sun.  We have a solid doghouse for him.  We just need to move it to his new spot.

The weather is supposed to warm up this week and it's finally going to stay warm!

That means we'll be able to work on more clean-up around our place.  We'll be prepping the garden beds for the seeds we received last week.  I hope to find a local source for seed potatoes.

We also need to determine the size of the enclosed area for our chicks while they transition between the brooder and being free-range.  They won't arrive until May, so we have time to work that out.

On top of all of that, we're trying to sort through the ridiculous regulations hampering Farmer's Markets in our state.  Our local Tractor Supply store is offering free space for vendors.  Yay!  We can't wait to set up there.

In the midst of all of this, we figured out how to link this blog to our Facebook page so our friends and family members can easily stay up-to-date on what we're up to.

All of this planning has put us, as seven year old Noah said, into an Organic Panic!

 Welcome, Homestead Barn Hop friends!


  1. Funny Noah. I will help anyway I can. Take a deep breath and work on one thing at a time.
    It sound like you will have the dog situated tomorrow. I am still planning to come up on Tuesday to help get seeds started. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with. See you later today. :D

  2. The dog is situated! He isn't happy about it because he isn't used to being alone. He whimpered and barked and howled like a coondog!

  3. How fun to be able to set up at your Farmer's Market! And I hear ya about all the regulations. I need to do more research about our state. Thanks for sharing this at the Homestead Barn Hop!
