I am at a dead slow crawl here and it is killing me! Problems with my Tilapia tank are killing me the worst right now. My pump and filter are shot and as of tonight the water is so dark I can't see my fish. No idea what to do since my schedule is up at 5.30 am, gone by 6.30 and back at 9pm. I don't have a back up tank nor a net so I will have to get my father over the house since my wife isn't up for tasks like this. He has a way of being able to fix everything!
I still have the rabbits and chickens going great though!
I have been trying to rehome a Muskovy Drake, NH Red hen, and a Copper Maran barn mix hen. If you know anyone who would want them let me know! I don't have a winter shelter for them because my Rhode Islands wont let them in the chicken coop. It is like a deathmatch when anything tries to get in with the RI's! They are the Queen layers though so I they won't be going anywhere until someone outlays them!
I am interested in hearing your plans for the homestead! My set up takes up a grand total of 264 sq ft so I would be in heaven with 3 acres to play with!
What is your overall goal for the homestead?
Do you have a 1 year, 5 year, 10 year plan?
I decided to scrap my 10 year plan and just go with the flow for the next 2 years and re assess.
I am in training for small engine, motorcycle, snowmobile and marine Mechanics. I just want my rabbits, chickens, tilapia and the 9x9 garden for now!
If you need any work done to lawnmowers, weed wackers, snow blowers I can take them in next month or so and do everything for parts costs.
Stay dry! I heard the rain is coming down hard the rest of the week!
