Our sons had a great time camping, and we are making good progress towards Issue No. 113 deadline. Silveira is working on an important article of his own, as well as helping out with others, so we have been doing some brain storming this past week. Lenie is working through the weekend typing the names of new subscribers into the database. Goes to show you that there are no elites at BHM; if work needs to be done, the owners jump right in and help out at any job.
I have found time, however, to work on an expansion of the chicken run attached to our chicken coop. My boys and I cleared out a wood shed attached to the existing coop and run, then joined it to the old run. It seems rather extravagant for chickens, and I wouldn’t have intentionally designed such a structure, but the chickens have benefited by my decision to abandon this particular wood shed. The upper wood shed, closer to the back door of the house, is simply a more convenient point of entry for firewood into the house.
I’ve also been working on some video for the blog. Jay Stoler will show me how to upload it to the blog next week, so pretty soon I’ll give you a “moving” account of my chicken coop run expansion.
