New Happenings for 2015

First off… sorry to all for being so lame on the blog posts.

A lot has happened since our last post so I will try to catch you up.

We added an 8′ x 10′ entry way to the dome, nothing fancy and not yet completed, but it is a vast improvement.

Our list for 2015 was supposed to be small, but it’s looking like we’ll have a full schedule of happenings.

Here are the highlights:

  1. We are going to be raising honey bees,  (to be delivered end of April) 3 lbs. or 10,000 Carniolan honey bees. So we need to build their new hive home this month.

  2. We ordered and will be planting (300) 2-year-old Caragana shrubs (aka Siberian Pea Shrubs) around the parameter fence.

  3. We’ll be adding an additional 1200 feet of field fencing, and electric fencing. And developing two pasture areas for a few Icelandic sheep to be purchased in 2016.

  4. We getting 2 Heritage Berkshire pigs in March. We got 90% of their shed built and will be fencing off sections of the property for them to begin rooting.

  5. We getting 32 chicks in March. They will following the pigs in the paddocks to remove the bugs, weed seeds, and flatten out the soil in preparation for pasture seeding and mulch. Some will be kept for layers, and some for meat.

  6. Building the underground greenhouse.

So.. that’s the highlights. That’s the adventure that awaits us for 2015. Stay tuned, because it’ll all be blog-worthy…
