...And Speaking of Farming

Here's the latest addition to our homesteading efforts, a rain catchment barrel, otherwise affectionately known as "poop water" since we've added some of our high-in-nitrogen stinky stuff to it. The addition of an aerator has made a remarkable difference in the olfactory factor (i.e. our back deck no longer smells like it is located next to the sewage treatment plant). Now nothing emanating from our chickens will go to waste, not even theirs.


  1. How do you get the rain in the barrel????

  2. Well that's a genius question. It falls from the sky...after Chicken Little does her rain dance on the roof. However we are soon to have a new crop growing at the farm...mosquitos.
