Homestead To Do Tuesday

Well, the manic feeling from the Prednisone has left me and now I am back to my fatigued self.


Today, there is not much going on at the hodgepodge homestead today.  I have been focused on lowering bills and getting out of debt. In addition, I have been thinking out of the box for ways to build up this homestead with as little money as possible.

For instance, we FINALLY brought the baby ducks outside. The original run was not big enough for 9 ducks and 4 chickens so I created a makeshift run.

It looks horrible.

BUT, it works.  It will be getting fix shortly. We bought a shed to convert to a coop. As soon as we bought it, our neighbor asked if we wanted to buy his EXACT same shed for $100 cheaper and it has the base we were going to do without. Uh, heck yeah we do! He needs a bigger one. So, sometime We may be able to recoup some of the cost of the shed. So happy about that!

Another homestead to do task is to get rid of clutter!  I am thinking yard sale!  Or at least craigslist. Less clutter, more money towards debt!  (I am thinking this is morphing into a Monday Money post, oh well).

Another to do is the turkey and duck eggs we are incubating. Exciting!  I am nervous and excited at the same time. Who knows what the neighbors will think about that?!?  The ducks may not stay. Maybe one of them. The rest will be given away...or eaten.  But probably given away.

So that is what is going on here at the hodgepodge homestead. Nothing too crazy exciting!
