Happy Earth Day (a little late). There's nothing quite like digging your hands in the soil. "Mama, I'm looking for worms for the chickens. And mixing in chicken poop." .

It was moving day for the quack-a-lackers and their buff orphington friend, finally!! It always amazes me how every critter immediately recognizes new voices. .

While it may not seem like it, warmer days are just on the horizon. One task I'm getting rather excited for is rooing and shearing our sheep this year!
Ruthie has had my heart since I found her in the barn last year. I had big hopes for the little one to blossom and she sure did. Her wool is like no other in my flock. It will be an adventure figuring out how to make it shine in a project. .

Day Nine of the #100dayproject was all about getting some seeds started. I am notoriously late at starting seeds. In my defense the ideal time to start them typically occurs when my ladies are gearing up and having babies so...priorities. Right now we have a lovely little lull in birthing and since the days are still frosty I don't feel quite as behind.
70 sunflowers were planted
20 squash
14 snow peas
10 chamomile
& 8 tomato
seeds planted so far. Many more to go.
40+ sunflowers up already! Because really it's all about the sunflowers to me. 🌻 .

Day Eight of #the100dayproject involved a little cheese making, mozzarella to be specific. There is a quick process and slow process to making mozzarella. In the past I've always chosen the slow. While the cheese would be edible, it had the texture more of string cheese than mozzarella. I went with the quick method this time and came closer to what I am looking for in a fresh mozzarella, but not quite there yet. Guess I'll have to keep trying and enjoy the trials in the process. .

There are times when my body likes to "just say no" to food. It is during these times I am grateful it says yes to raw milk. .

Wishing the little taste of spring we got we would come back. I am made for laying in the field with my critters. Handling the wind, cold, and other elements?? Not so much. .

Got a love Fitness Fridays! I had a great time out at Dewys reminding folks of how to take care of themselves during 12 hour shift and be intentional versus passive when it comes to wellness. #allegrocoachingcorporate #Corporatepersonaltraining #corporate #fitnessFridays #wellness #manufacturing #classicrock #dirtyhandswarmheart #safetyglasses

Day Seven's #the100dayproject focused around making some oils for soap, lotion, and more. These jars contained: Globe Amaranth, Tiger Lily, Calendula, and Chamomile paired with either sunflower or olive oil.
I did a quick method of infusing these oils by allowing the jars to sit in hot water for 24+ hours. Once they were ready, the oils were strained and put in labeled jars for future body products.
Looking forward to seeing how the smells, especially the chamomile, carry through. .

I know it's intrusive Clementine, I'm sorry, but I can't contain my excitement over your little bag starting to grow! πŸ˜† .

It's an incredible feeling to know I have the privilege of raising food for others. We started egg shares last year and have continued on with them this year. It's super to have last year's peeps back and to welcome new ones. We're even to the point I can open up for a couple more spots! I'm looking forward to adding some sweet touches here and there by ways of packaging, my little ladies already make gorgeous eggs. .

Day Five of #the100dayproject involved some gardening with the chickens. We have a lot of material around here to compost and the chickens are my number one helpers in making sure everything is turned, tilled, and tossed to perfection. I am the worst gardener around though I have a good time trying. Perhaps this is our year, we certainly have a terrific start thanks to the chooks! .
