Barn Decor

New decorations for the coop and gate. We may be a muddy mess, but we’re a cute muddy mess! 😂 A few of you have asked about where I found my gate roosters. It was one of those 3am finds on eBay. I was…

Happy Saturday!

Fence project – done!!! It’s not perfect because I don’t weld, but it’s pretty gosh darn close, and certainly $1500 worth of close! 😁 Now on to the next project. I’m gonna use this 95 gallon galvanized water tank from the barn, and the…

Mending Fences

My first project of the day: this broken fence. Seven old cypress trees blew over in the last storm. Luckily, there wasn’t much damage, except for a section of this fence. I’ve already got a roll of this fencing, from some chicken projects I…

Headed to the Farmer’s Market!

Today I’m headed to the downtown Sacramento farmer’s market with my favorite six year old, and my favorite Christmas present! I use this wagon in the garden and barn for a million things. It has all terrain wheels that can handle the pasture, and…

Fairy Gardens

Spring is Coming

I cleaned out the vegetable garden today. It should have been done in November. But, as you all know, life has a way of taking over! I cleared away the final, withered, unpicked Romano beans off their trellises. The dead vines of last summer’s…

Planting Bulbs in Spring?

Daisy and I planted hundreds of daffodil and tulip bulbs in the fall. It took us a couple of weeks. As we were finishing, we noticed that some of them were already sprouting green shoots and buds. I worried that if hard frosts did…

Mr. MacGregor’s Garden

So here’s the reason we named our bunnies Peter and Flopsy. Our next door neighbor is literally a farmer named Mr. MacGregor! Sacramento is historically an agricultural community. 100 years ago our area was all farmland. Our house was built next to a dairy…
