April 2, 2006 – Fencing

The soggieness continues – just 6 miles south of us had 4 inches of rain last night, but we didn’t get that downpour. Nonetheless, our spring soil has been properly recharged. Spent some time today revamping some fencing around the chicken coop. Put in some “gates” that will allow access through every fence. As it is now, the fences that were in place sometimes forced a long walk to get across a fence. Now, it is much easier.

Also moved one chicken tractor on top of a new raised bed to help build soil.

The soap was an unqualified learning experience. It fractured when it cut and was a bit crumbly. After researching soap troubleshooting, it may have been because of over-stirring, or curing not at room temperature. We’ll try again!
