Chicken Chores and Weeding the Raspberry Patch

Sunday June 28, 2020 Guerneville CA.

Butcher day

Yesterday I worked on butchering some chickens. Instead of making it an all day project I got going on it right away and got it done in about two hours. That way I didn’t have to sit around thinking about it all day.

Moved some woodchips

After a good break chair hopping I moved a load of woodchips to the peeps grow pen from here.chips

 

It was getting a bit muddy in there from the overhead sprinkler so this layer of woodchips helped a lot.  Not the chickens as they love muddy stuff, but for me as I have to move around in there too.chipspen

Weeding the raspberry patch

After that I spent the rest of the day digging out nut grass weeds from the raspberry patch which I’d started a couple days ago. It’s hard work so I’m taking my time pretty much.weedrow

 

That pretty much was my day.

Today

Weeding

I didn’t have anything planed for today so I worked on weeding the raspberry patch some more and spent most of the day on it.

I have most of it done but not quite.view

 

Chicken food

I load up the wheelbarrow and take the weeds to the chickens pen for feed. I spend quite a bit of time in that chair resting up between working on digging weeds.weeds

 

I’ve got a good pile of the weeds in the peeps pen for them to work on.weedpeeps

 

I have another wheelbarrow or two of weeds left to dig out. I got done what I could today but wasn’t able to finish the job, but almost.

Nice day working in the yard and enjoying the day.
