Saturday February 1, 2020 Guerneville CA.
I started off the day moving 4 wheelbarrows of woodchips to the raspberry patch. I figured that would get me started and it did.
Overflow bottle mounting
After that I opened up the van to figure out where to mount a radiator bottle for the overflow. There’s not much room to mount a tank in there so it was a bit of a puzzle.
Tire pressure check
I set that aside and checked all the tires and the spare for proper tire pressure. The spare was almost zero so it might have a slow leak hole in it somewhere so I’ll keep an eye on it and see how fast it loses it’s pressure.
And fun greasing
Back to the water bottle install
I decided to try some other plastic bottles for the water tank. After much messing around I was able to put this one in sideways. It just fit real good and was easy to install. I need to cut out the bottle for the hose at this point and fasten the bottle in.
Egg production up
Hauling more woodchips
Towards evening I hauled 4 more loads of woodchips to the raspberry patch which pretty much did me in for the day so I did some chair hopping.
After that I planted about ten extra raspberry plants I had left over. I put them around the yard so I can grave on them as I walk the yard.
After dark I went out and closed up the chickens. My new roosters are making too much noise at night which means to quiet things down it’s butcher time so I had to select the ones for the deed and put the in a separate cage for the night. They squawked a lot and weren’t happy. I think I need to let it get darker so they are calmer during catch time.
Nice sunny day working and puttering around the yard.
