I bought the container but haven’t done anything else with that. Hopefully month 4 I will have some Agriscape food growing.
In the Agriscaping courses, we learned about productive animals for food and so I have been thinking about what that would be.
We have older children now that come and go with college. Recently we lost our long-time furry friend and the boys are hounding us for another dog. I jokingly said ” No more dogs. I want a yard and when they leave I am stuck with a dog for 15 more years. The next pets we get will have to be food and/or produce food for us.”
I was thinking we would eventually get chickens.
I went away on vacation and when I came home the usual boy smell that the house contains when mom is away for a few weeks was very strong and unique. This was a new smell. One I hadn’t experienced the last few times I had left. Then I saw it! On my kitchen table were baby ducks!
My son had gotten baby ducks and was keeping them in the house with the excuse they were too small to be outside. I had to admit they were pretty cute so I bought some duck diapers. They wore them once but we didn’t get pictures. 🙁
We got our compost set up and have been adding to it. It has been an adjustment to remember to save our scraps. But it does feel exciting to think we are creating black gold! The worm compost is loaded and ready for the worms to work. We are slowly filling one side of the spinning compost bin. So we are taking baby steps on learning how to adjust to an Agriscaping lifestyle and remembering to save our scraps.
This month was loaded and other than adding to our compost bin and having meetings for our final design we have been just been doing regular handyman jobs and not as focused on our Agriscaping. Also it’s been hotter than heck in Az. so we aren’t to sad about it. Hopefully we have more to share next month.
