Abby turned 13 - she chose a super unhealthy cake to make - once a year they get to choose a cake and most of the children decide to make it themselves.
I built a door for the barn.
This chrysalis was hanging from some lettuce I picked. Looking forward to seeing what it will become.
I am sure there are better ways to do this - but - what I do is when I clean the goat barn or chicken coops, I put it all in a pile (aka the compost pile). When it gets about 2 - 2 1/2 feet tall I just start piling to the side of the first pile. I use the oldest pile first in the garden.
I apply the compost (which is really fun because it is soooo full of worms) in between my garden rows which actually will be more important for next year's gardens. This allows me to do a bit here and some more there - which is pretty much how I do everything around here.
