Homestead Happenings 2
Hannah and I were so excited to receive our first donation in the mailbox today and this lovely card with such thoughtful kind word . Thank you Lecia so much. She asked will this be my new address? Well you know we have to wait for the drawing to know your new address. Don't Forget She Could Be Yours. Information is a click away in my right sidebar.
The weather was nice enough to clean both feathered friends houses today. Can you believe Hannah wanted no parts of this. She stayed inside and took a herself a nap.
I found this is a great way to hide the modern dog kennel and provide shade for the furry friends. So here is my hanging garden on the dog kennel I mentioned to you. With zip ties the shoe organizers are attached to the frame. I am cutting the bottoms out of plastic soda bottles to put in the pockets before putting the soil in. The pockets dry out fast in the sun so I thought by adding the plastic bottoms some water will not escape. The wood platform was a wood skid with a piece of thick wood added to it. It is a recycle item to. This is the start of a second outhouse for garden tools. The one you have seen in past garden posts is not tall enough for tools so it is used for creature food storage.
These wash tubs will serve as my planting station. I am mixing soil and sand to fill the pockets of the hanging garden. The ground will be covered with more rocks. This is our little dog Chicho under foot.
Topaz had her hoody on waiting for me to hurry up. She was getting tired and wanted to go in and take her afternoon nap. After all celebrated her second birthday this week and needed her catch up sleep. So off we went to cuddle. Til Next Time Blessings!
