GETTING READY FOR THE HEN MOVE – SOUP – PUMPKINS – DYEING CLOTH WITH BLACK WALNUTS

MOVING THE HENS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today I set up two new nesting boxes in Murphy’s area.  I am going to move Murphy to the front and  Mrs. Brown, Morticia and Milly  to the rear front coop.  I may move two more from the rear coop in with them too.  I will evaluate it tomorrow when I am ready to make the move.  I have to put up two more perches and will go to home depot to get what I need for them.  I think that I will put Hazel in with Mrs. Brown as they have been together all their lives.  This will be better for all.  The little Bantams were getting picked on by the bigger birds and I am carefully picking hens that are compatible with them and if Mrs. Brown and Morticia want to sit on eggs again it will be a more serene situation.

GYPSY SOUP

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am making soup today and have picked more kale out of the garden to put in it.  I am planning a trip to Ireland soon and plan to bring the spices I need to make the soup there.  When I am in Ireland I generally eat out  for the noon meal and eat at the cottage for my evening meal.  It’s usually something light like soup.

PUMPKINS $1.00 a piece a bargain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought 12 pumpkins –  6 very large ones for the chickens and 6 small ones for pies.  I plan to cook them in the crock pot tomorrow.  The front seat of my car was full.

OLD BLACK WALNUT DYE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today I dyed half of the material I bought to make primitive turkey’s with.  The dye was so old and  was a very light beige so I was unsure it would be suitable.  It came out perfect and tonight I will dye the other half.  I am hoping to go and get some more black walnuts in Vermont this coming week.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and hope you have a wonderful day.
