Garden Update 2.0

On Saturday, The Architect and I rented a little trailer and went over to Bubba's house to relieve him of his compost pile.

We spread it on the garden, and today I limed since it's supposed to rain here in a few hours.  I've begun to harden off the plants, and I hope to plant them this weekend.

I'm working from home full time now, and at first, I had a hard time making the change.  I just kind of felt... lost.  Couldn't get a groove.  I'm doing great now and much happier (despite a few annoyances due to the bureaucracy of getting the proper paperwork to make a business legitimate) to be at home with all the animals and cooking more.  I'm slowly starting to learn how to coupon.

I sold three of my chinchillas, leaving me with three.  I used to breed and show them, but I had a hard time finding good buyers, so I kept my last six as pets.  Since I've been getting into the more self-sufficient mindset, I wanted to downsize on the number of chinchillas I had since they were animals I was feeding who weren't producing for me.

Now the three I've sold have gone to a great home, and I have time to love the three I have left.  I also have a free cage to use as a grow-out cage for when I get rabbits.

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the warmer weather.  :)


  1. Are you still getting bunnies?

  2. I am! Just not sure when yet. After Easter, definitely, since we've got so many irons in the fire at the moment. :)
