  • These birds.  I can remember my longing for these birds this time two years ago when we were getting ready to sell our suburban home (which we would FAIL). #hurricaneharvey
β€’
But we have chickens now!!!! And they are doing some amazing work for our fall garden this year. 🀞 that we will be getting out of triple digit heat this week! πŸ₯΅
β€’
Once the heat lets up a little, we will have to take the next step with culling most of our roosters.  We will keep a couple, but this is going to be a HUGE step for @bettertogetherwife and I and our homesteading adventure!

  • Black WIDOW!!!
β€’
Well yesterday we found the body-less snake and then TODAY!!!
β€’
I have learned a scary lesson about black widows.  Do NOT leave a tarp out on the grass for two weeks creating the perfect dark and humid environment that these dangerous creatures love.
β€’
Today, I have seen my first black widow.  Yikes!!!

We started raising rabbits in our suburban home in west Houston.  We couldn’t have chickens due to our β€œHOA blue hairs”. So we opted to go with rabbits because well, they are much easier to raise in suburbia because of MANY reasons! β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
What are those reasons you ask?  Well I ACTUALLY made a new video over on our YouTube channel!!!!!! ⬅️⬅️ Did you know that we have a YouTube channel? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‡ LINK IN BIO. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”

But I wouldn’t want to make the Gram here seem like just a tease.  So I’ll be nice and give you ALL SIX of the reasons!!! But..... you’ll have to watch the video in order to see the special BONUS!!!!!

1. Their Magic Poo for Your Garden πŸ’© 
2. Rabbit Meat is VERY Healthy Protein
3. Rabbits are Low Maintenance 
4. You Can Sell Bunnies as PETS
5. Easy to Learn Basic Genetics 🧬

  • This is Rex.  He is our pure bred Rex breed buck. ⬅️ that wasn’t proper English.
β€’
Rex (short for T-Rex) is an absolute STUD!  So much that he is even successful with our does when we think we have had a failed breeding.  But he is batting 1000!!! β€’
For us he has produced 37 bunnies!!! And he was a successful buck even before we got him. β€’
Plus, Rex is also the sweetest rabbit we have had these last 3 years.  Everyday he hops up to the front and wants to be pet.  He is awesome.  So much so that we will be keeping him (as a pet) past his prime!!

  • One of our favorite things to do is to go on a walk of our back pasture...and future pond site! Someday this is a location we will have as an AirBNB rental over looking this beautiful hay field where the wind is always blowing and it will over look our DREAM POND!

  • I.Have.Finally.DONE IT!  I have been able to keep a sourdough starter ALIVE!!! You guys this has been a dream come true! β€’
And yes I did just say that.  I have FAILED so many times trying to create a starter that I had to give up.  Which is why I now love this way of getting your sourdough starter..... USE THE COMMUNITY!!!!! I am sure that you have some family or friend or coworker that would love to give you a starter.  You have to discard anyway, so why not spread the love!! β€’
THANK YOU @jwhornstra for hooking me up brother!!!!!!!!!!!! 😁😁😁 β€’

And yes.  Thank you @hollarhomestead for teaching us how to make clay pots!!
