Very cool finds...

So I was browsing in a store last week, one of those hit or miss stores and I came across this very cool find for just $4.00 each! As I continued to look I found this forged stork pair of embroidery scissors as well.

This pair was my favorite, very old fashioned looking. If you message me and want to know where I got them I'd be glad to inbox you and share my find! I have already put them to good use!

Egg Laying in January~wow!

So do chickens get bored in the winter? It's too cold to come out of the coop, today it snowed and yucked from the sky. so they took to laying eggs. Out of 25 chickens, I got 22 eggs today! Girls slow down! Needless to say folks, we have eggs!

Candy Boards and A New Year...

Well it's a New Year and I am approaching it with great caution and respect. Today, Rob the young man I am mentoring for his Senior Project as well as his Grandfather, who is an aspiring Beekeeper set out to make Candy Boards to feed the bees. We started with a proven recipe...

we poured the sugar into the boiling water and went to work making them as they learned how important it is to feed the bees through the winter...

I had many more pictures but Blogger did not want to upload them tonight. So we prepared the Candy Boards and installed them. I went up later, low and behold the bees went to eating the Candy, Honey B Healthy and Pollen Patties. So this is their time to rest, eat and await Spring to thrive once again.
