A little over a month ago, the Tucson Mayor and Council approved the Tucson Urban Agriculture Plan. Among other provisions of this code was a section on how one will manage their composting activities. My landlady was outraged, and rightly so as, "there are many different ways to manage compost and who is to decide what is right or wrong". Ironically, a week or so ago she questioned how I was managing my composting as it was not as she would do it and I reminded her of her own words.
Introducing new members to an existing flock.
After the first 7 months of keeping my Plymouth Barred Rocks and loving their temperament and their production, I decided to double the flock and placed another order with Ideal Poultry in Texas. The girls arrived a day later and were again packed with care and I didn't suffer a loss. Just like the original flock, they were handled daily since arrival and kept in the brooder box, which then became their temporary home after an addition until I was ready to move them outdoors.
We are now 10 days into 2016, as I put this post together. I am happy to say that I am working toward my goals... I am taking an hour a night off the computer and social media to read blogs, magazines and books- mostly how to's pertaining to animals, crops, homesteading and eating healthier and I can see the top of my desk again, the receipts and invoices have been filed. So with the paperwork handled, I was able to tackle the financials and objectively see what worked and what didn't in 2015.
