Well, this has been the summer I’ve been hopin’ for: Plenty of rain, plenty of sunshine, and lots of time out in the garden and around the farm. It's all we can do to keep up with a bumper crop of beans (as I’m buildin’ up the soil simultaneous-like…more on that some other time) and the grass is as green as spring in August! The Lord has and is surely blessing us this year. And all of those summer blessings have surely contributed to a slightly later-than-normal next episode of The Farm Hand’s Companion Show. But alas, it's now done.
On the surface, this latest show (episode 10) is quite simple. I had a few chickens that were in need of housing … and they needed it right quick from materials I had on hand. You’re about to see my solution to that dilemma; but in solving that problematic situation, I took the opportunity of this episode to really speak to something just a tad deeper ... an inner conflict that might afflict you or someone you know ... and that is perfectionism.
In a few days I’ll have a companion post on the website which will contain a few more details on the subject of building a simple log chicken house. To check for it, go to http://www.farmhandscompanion.com and mash on the “Buildin’ or Makin’” link right here on the homepage. Or, if you haven’t, be sure and subscribe to the email update list (just look over and hunt for the subscribe link in the right hand column) and I’ll send an email bulletin on this or future posts as they become newly viewable.
Gardening, raising livestock, woodworking...you name it...most facets of traditional farm topics will be covered from time to time. Within each of the categories you'll find posts, articles, or pictures that I think you'll like. I'll be posting new ones as often as the farm work permits. So keep checkin' back often for some fresh farm reading!
Look over here to the left and up a bit, then mash on any particular topic of interest to you.
