Seed Sharing. I was curious what Chinese Red Noodle beans would look like so I went ahead and planted a few shortly after receiving them. I didn't plant all the seeds because I normally save beans for the spring garden. I was surprised at how quick they germinated and then the grasshoppers got a hold of half the plants, leaving me with three determined to shine. We went weeks without rain and regular watering wasn't doing much for them so I began to think fall is the pits for planting beans. In September we received several rainy days and they began to grow like jack and the bean stock.

I finally got around to making my egg nesting station for the chickens. I enjoy my garden quail but I also raise chickens for the purpose of extreme bug control, eggs and meat. I picked a dual purpose breed the Buff Orpington and so far I'm pretty happy, they have a nice peaceful attitude while they wonder the farm free ranging day after day.
Today I'm sharing this project DIY style; if you like it hopefully you can easily implement it to your own homestead. This was a fun afternoon where building lasted a couple hours allowing me to use up unwanted seed trays and left over supplies from the farm making this a no expense project. I love that!
