Weekend Chores

Farm work is a daily thing.
Even on weekends.

Additionally, though, on weekends we try to get "projects" completed...
especially when we have help from "the kids".

This weekend Amanda and Tim joined us for a bit of farm work.

The guys continued to fill my cedar garden boxes....
topsoil and compost....

after all Spring is just around the corner. (Isn't it?)

Amanda and I washed and packaged eggs for this week's sales.
That particular chore is an every Sunday occurrence.
Our layers are doing a great job of keeping up with demand this winter.

  1. That sounds like the perfect weekend to me! Your eggs are so lovely. How many hens do you have? I'm having total garden box envy at the moment too....

  2. Your cedar boxes look great. I can't wait to see everything planted and green... Lucky you, so many eggs from your own chickens. Do you sell them from home?

  3. First visit here. I love those raised beds, I could do with some of those myself!

    Off to roam your blog...

  4. At this point I have just over 80 chickens....in 4 henhouses. And, I cannot wait to try out the garden boxes....so much easier to control weeds....and not have to get down on my hands and knees to do it!!

  7. Wow, I had no idea you had so many eggs, sure wish I lived down the road from you! I just recently started getting eggs from farmgirl Firemama. It's wonderful, they are sooooo fresh. I always buy organic but was shocked at how much fresher they are from the farm. P. S. Can you send those men my way, I want more raised beds, they are wonderful, so easy to work.

  8. I am in Envy of your boxes. I am making new ones this year as my old boxes finally died. They were just pine and had lasted 4 years. That isn't bad for so little invested in them. I love how deep your's are! I will have to give that a try. Hubby found a supply of cheap planks we are going to try out for the sawmill.
    Love the eggs. My son is investing in some laying hens of his own this spring. He wants to work sell eggs locally too. I will have to show him your post. He will get pretty excited. Thanks for sharing!
