This is another project I've been experimenting with this winter to keep the blues away. ❄

Last year I stuck a sweet potato in a jar of water and it gave me multiple sweet potato slips. BUT not until like, 3 months later. And by that point it was too late to plant them and expect to get any crop with our short growing season here in Colorado. So this year I changed 3 factors:
1) I placed the jar and potato in the sunniest, warmest spot in my house. Maybe heat will get it sprouting faster. ☀
2) I started this January 1st. 🎉
3) I put some of our homemade compost in the water. .
.
.
Boy have those 3 things worked wonders! Not even a month in and check out those roots and leaves forming! I eat so many sweet potatoes throughout the year. Maybe this year I'll be able to harvest my own...

This is the view from our upstairs window. I pass by this view every time I go up and down our stairs and I honestly catch myself daydreaming on these raining days about the potential for these space. This was the area we built last year as our “pasture” for the rabbits. Since we’ve been dealing with all kinds of changes with our rabbits (an update to come soon!) this will now be the future home of our mixed breed poultry flock. I know it may seem small and a total mess right now but come summer this space will allow us to bring in both egg and meat chicken as well as two heritage turkey. Does anyone else who has raised a #mixedflock of birds have design suggestions? Advice? Tips? #wildgrown #urbanfarming #urbanfarm #urbanhomestead #mixedflock #chickens #turkeys #backyardflock #backyardchickens #poultry #homesteadersofinstagram #homestead #homesteading #eggs #backyardbirds #heritagebreed #citychickens #citychicks #farm #farmhouse #design

@yankeechickenco is a local farm in Willington, CT that will ship directly to you. They’re not part of any national chain, nor are they a “co-op” farm. They only sell what they raise on their family farm. No Beef, No Pork, No Lamb. They only sell great tasting Pasture Raised Chicken. They only offer what they know best. You can order as often as your family needs require and there will not be any recurring monthly automatic charges to your credit card.
.
What makes their pastured chicken different than “grocery store chicken?” Their chickens live outside. A "Free Range" grocery store chicken has most likely never seen the outdoors or a fresh blade of grass with the morning dew on it. Their chickens live the "pastured life" enjoying fresh green forage everyday. This makes for happy healthy chickens with a flavor that cannot be matched in the grocery store.
.
Orders are shipped out on Wednesdays because they package and flash freeze on Monday & Tuesday. They mail out orders on Wednesday to ensure that you will receive them on Thursdays. By doing this the same way every week, they’re able to keep costs low and pass the savings along to you! Place orders via their website (LINK IN BIO) theyankeechickencompany.com .
Give @yankeechickenco a follow and check them out for all of your fresh & local chicken needs! We made this awesome breakfast hash with their chicken sausage and it was SO good!

It's kind of cool what a big difference a week makes. These are an early cabbage variety.

When I start seeing those first "true leaves", that's when I'll typically start watering these seedlings from the bottom instead of misting them from above. They all live in a dollar store casserole tray and I'll just pour some water in that tray every day. They suck up what they need. It saves me a lot of time, too!

You guys!!! Check out these beauties!!! I’m home from work early today to work on connecting their temporary coop to the existing run. I moved them all into the run while I do this work, and of course gave them each some snuggles on the way. I am so in love! This rooster... 😍😍😍 WOW he’s gorgeous!! But the top sweetheart so far is this Blue Ameraucana. She is so calm and sweet. 💕

We had 4 Cuckoo Marans hens and 2 Cuckoo roosters. We raised 2 hens, Silverbell & Bellatrix and our main rooster Butthead from chicks. We hatched a couple of their eggs to test fertility last year and ended up with an extra rooster this past summer. We adopted 2 other Cuckoo hens early last year from a friend of the family and they blended well with our three originals.
🐔🐓
We decided recently to downsize our Cuckoo flock and the extra rooster we were left with had grown into a big beautiful boy! So we decided to put the young rooster and the two adopted hens together and re-home them with Hubbies mom! She has lots of game chickens running around the yard but never gets eggs, so she wanted some great chickens specifically for eggs!
🐔🐓
This little trio will be a great set for my mother in law and will be well taken care of! The young rooster has grown into a sweet and attentive boy so the ladies will be very happy! I however will miss seeing these 4 beautiful & unique eggs in the basket each day! The two on the top right are from the girl we kept and the two on the bottom left are from the girls we re-homed!

My daughter likes to free range her chickens in the yard but I prefer they stay in the chook yard when we're not home. And this is why - yesterday rooster boy got out and destroyed my herbs and lettuce seedlings I had in a pot 😡 not happy!

Well...we’re up to 2 eggs today!! Unfortunately it’s like going on an unexpected Easter Egg Hunt to find them 😂🤦‍♀️ Oh ladies. I’m really glad to be getting eggs again though in all seriousness. The winter vacay was rough.

I guess I just needed to threaten the hens to get them to lay again. We had been getting 1-2 green eggs a day so I haven't been checking daily. I expected to find maybe 2-3 today so this was a nice surprise to find 7, including two brown ones. Thank you ladies! #backyardchickens #fresheggs #finallylayingagain #chickenshamingworks 😂😂

Lediga dagar är bra märkliga ändå. Man går och grejar, pysslar med djuren & surplar alldeles för mycket kaffe. Rätt som det är har dagen gått och man vet egentligen inte riktigt vad man har gjort eller hur den gick så fort. Men det är väl det som är det fina med att ha en egen liten farm. Man har alltid något att göra. Och sällskap; det har man också alltid vare sig man vill eller inte. ❣️ #livetpålandet #helalandetlever #minlandsbygd #visomharhöns
