Homestead Happenings 3

The gazebo has been swept out of left over leaves from last fall. The chickens are roaming the gardens enjoying what sunny days we have been blessed to have lately.Our potatoe beds are ready for planting. I have decided to also plant bell peppers along side of our potatoes.As yet we have not been able to continue the rock sidewalk around the gardens. Still waiting for a response to a request for unwanted tin roofing. 
Topaz is enjoying the outdoors more these days. The old skid has been removed and the rocks have been put in place. As for our old porch it will have to continue to serve us for now. Many years ago we reclaimed this old wood porch from a near by neighbor who removed it from a building on their property. I have hopes to spruce it up a bit with some porch paint. That can be a project for Sam when school let's out for summer. My plans for the out house tool shed have been put on hold for now. 

Hannah has received two confirmed entries for her new home. Hannah and I would like to thank you at this time. If you are reading my blog for the first time in awhile you will have some catching up to do to find out about how you may qualify to have a chance to give her a new home this June. Just click her pitchure in my right side bar to read all about it and enter if you like. I am very much looking forward to get more under way at my summer therapy in the gardens. 


  1. Your gazebo is looking inviting again !
    Always nice when the chickens are enjoying the free ranging.

  2. Ah yes...summer therapy in the garden. I hear you!

  3. Morning Lara, I would love to sit in the gazebo, so cozy looking. I cannot wait to get my hands into the dirt and start planting, Hugs Francine.

  4. It looks lovely, Lara. Best wishes to you and yours.
    I hope the potatoes are abundant this year.

  5. That gazebo is gorgeous! Sounds like spring work is really underway at your place.
