For the first day of 2016 we spent the day on the Farmstead and enjoyed a day off. It was a great day. We slept in then put a pork roast and sauerkraut in the crock pot for dinner. We worked around the house to the aroma of slow cooking pork and kraut.
I spent about an hour outside measuring and setting landscape flags for the future chicken area and food forest. I will be putting the measurements into Google SketchUp and working the plans up on the computer over the next few months so hopefully I will have a plan for chickens and planting in the spring.
After I was done measuring and placing flags Tandy and I walked around the land. I think she was chasing field mice in the tall grass. I saw at least 7 blue birds in the tree line along the road.
It was a good day.
